London (ANI): American musician Quincy Jones is re-recording charity song 'We Are the World" to help quake-hit Haiti. The 76-year-old legend said musicians are gathering on Feb 1 at a Los Angeles recording studio to redo the 25-year-old hit song.

Jones would not say who will perform on the track "because we've got to make sure we've got who we got", but that the revamped song will feature a new roster of all-star musicians, reports the Mirror.

The original 1985 hit was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. It featured Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Tina Turner, among others. The proceeds will be sent for Haiti survivors.
