2010年1月12日、ハイチ共和国で起こったM7.0の地震によって、20万人を超える死傷者と今後数年にわたる被害が発生しました。世界各国は、金銭支援、人的援助、物資援助をハイチへ。また、大国だけでなく小国と呼ばれる各国からも人的援助が行われるなど広がりをみせています。今まであまり知らなかった国ですが、この事件をきっかけにハイチ共和国を知ることになりました。少しでも早く、被災した方々が安心して生活ができるように祈っています。

そして先日、”We Are The World 25 For Haiti” がリリースされました。オリジナルの”We Are The World”は、1985年にアフリカの貧困と飢餓を救うために制作されたキャンペーンソングで、そうそうたるアーチスト達の結集によりメディアの力を全世界に与えた歴史的な出来事でした。25年経った今、Wyclef Jeanをはじめ若手のミュージシャンが結集し、新たな歴史を作ろうとしています。”We Are The World 25 For Haiti”の売り上げは、ハイチ地震援助のために使われます。”We Are The World 25 For Haiti”は、iTunesから曲やムービーがダウンロードできます。僕もiPhoneで持ち歩いていて、暇さえあれば歌っちゃってます。本当に素晴らしい曲ですね~。

When we heed a certain call

[Rapping - LL Cool J, Will-I-Am, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz]
We all need somebody that we can lean on
when you wake up look around and see that your dreams gone
when the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
when the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
we are the World united by love so strong
when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond
