The difference between this version and the 'new' one is that in this everyone has a unique style of singing, and they're not afraid to show it.  Whereas in the new version everyone's singing the same accepted 'American Idol' style and some people are even autotuning (awful). Nothing will compare to these legends gathering for one night and accomplishing something to last through the ages.

Couldn't agree more, I used to like to listen to this on cd and try put a name to the voice. Dylan and the The Boss were always a given lol+Cagnazzo

An ego trip that solved nothing, sadly little of the food or money ever reached Ethiopia due to mismanagement or theft. Those in the video were chosen like in a high school popularity contest, only the "cool people" were considered while artists like John Denver who had quietly worked in Africa for years helping the people were ignored. One story I found amusing was that Stevie Wonder pompously demanded that some of the song be sung in Swahili until he was informed that Ethiopians don't speak that language.

WTF??!! Peter, you were in his bed already? I think, it's only in your head- not in mine. If you know it better,Peter, you can tell me about the things,when Michael has done these things. Michael Jackson is dead and you still talking about these horrible things. I miss his music,ok?

Esse sem dúvida é a melhor música de todos os tempos!! Me lembro, eu era criança na escola quando acabava o hino Nacional sempre tocava "Usa for Africa" e todos continuavam em formação cantando essa bala canção mesmo ñ sabendo inglês!

Back when the world had REAL artists with REAL voices... This sounds so emotional and brings both a smile to your lips and a tear to your eyes... Why have the standards dropped so much? Why should all these wonderful people die? Yeah, everyone dies but why so soon? The worst thing is that the artists of today don't continue what they left to us, their legacy... The people you just saw where not only true artists, but also REAL human beings... They cared...
