Hello Hive Open Mic 🎤 Community, Greetings to y'all…I trust we are all doing good, and as always I'm super excited to share my entry for week #123. In line with this week's theme "A Better World For All" chosen by recent spotlight artist @daniky, I'd be performing a song by "USA For Africa called" "We Are The World". The group USA for Africa was made up of some of the era's (80's) best-known musicians.
It was written by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson, it was realeased in the year 1985.

In “We Are the World”, the artists call on the rest of the world to join forces and unite to help each other. The first verse references the Ethiopian famine when it talks about people dying and how people need to offer help to such victims.

In the second verse, the singers address how people can decide not to do anything by pretending that someone else will help those in need. The theme of the song is based on the fact that everyone in the world is interconnected and part of God’s big family, hence the need for each of us to love each other regardless of our backgrounds.The chorus prompts the listener to make a decision to give to support and save other’s lives because in doing that, we are indirectly saving the whole human race from the greed that kills it and making a positive change that will last generations.

This classic record has been awarded numerous honours including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and a People's Choice Award. I do hope y'all enjoy🎧 my cover of this classic. Also don't forget to be the change you seek in the World. 🤍 & 💡

LYRICS

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone somewhere will soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know
Love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So, let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So, let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well
Let's realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So, let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
[Repeat with ad-libs until the end]
