In 1985, a large group of musical performers gathered together to produce "We Are the World," an effort to battle famine in Africa. 46 vocalists were involved, and it was epic. But there were still many popular and talented artists of the time missing.
If you could add just one more artist to the ensemble, which would you choose?

I have actually thought about that over the years. My choice would be Whitney Houston, although she was just starting out at that time.

Breumaster,

'What a good idea! Wasn't the song the States' response to the UK's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" I mean weren't all the artists American so wouldn't artists like Sting and Annie Lennox not be eligible?

Thank you!  Yeah, I think part of the idea was that it U.S.A. for Africa, so they weren't going to have non-American artists, but this poll is just for the sake of fun, so I added British ones, too.  :)

Voted Whitney, R.I.P.

One of the defining artists of my childhood and young adulthood.

I should think about her every time I wash benzos down with whiskey, which is pretty much daily.

We still got
Lionel Richie
Steve Perry
Kenny Loggins
Cyndi Lauper
Kim Carnes
just to name a few

And perhaps this could be an opportunity to include the others that missed, like Madonna?

If this happens, I will put in my resume as a prophet.  :D
