BMF VIDEO: We Are The World

Sure, this rendition of We Are the World from last night’s Bermuda Music Festival could’ve ended a bit sooner but at the time no one, including myself, really wanted the superstars onstage to stop singing. It was just that good. Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie and produced by Quincy Jones—last night honored with an African Diaspora Lifetime Achievement Award by the Premier of Bermuda—the anthem was sung by none other than Kenny Rogers, James Ingram, Michael McDonald, Patti Austin and Gita Blakeney with backup provided by the soulful Bermuda Mass Choir. All in all an uplifting ending to a stellar show. The festival’s final performance kicks off tonight at 6pm with Grammy Award winner John Legend and a special performance of Thriller by the Warwick gombey troupe (otherwise known as Bermudian folk dancers). Sounds like a perfect Halloween night to me.
