Recorded after Sunday night's Grammy Awards, the session included such notable stars as Pink, Celine Dion, Natalie Cole, the Jonas Brothers, Kanye West, Tony Bennett, Akon and Jennifer Hudson, and was recorded at the same studio where the original version was recorded 25 years earlier, almost to the day. The original song and album raised nearly $30 million for the USA for Africa charity.

    Expect the single to be released shortly.
