We are the world... now (and then)

Quincy Jones produced both the original and this year's We are the World fundraising song/video. Originally written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, some of the lyrics were updated to reflect the crisis in Haiti.

What's particularly interesting to me is how many of the artists in the original are not included in the 2010 version. Where is Billy Joel? Kenny Rogers? Steve Perry? and so many others.
