–David Archuleta gives a thumbs on the red carpet for the recording “Somos El Mundo,” the Spanish version of “We Are the World.”
David joined over 50 of the biggest names in Latin music to record the song to benefit Haitian earthquake victims. “Somos El Mundo” adapted into Spanish by Gloria & Emilio Estefan, marks the first time ever that the legendary recording is translated into any language, with the approval and blessing of Lionel Richie and the Michael Jackson Estate, who wrote the original lyrics.
The music video, which will air on the Univision Network, will make its world-wide premiere on “El Show de Cristina” (The Cristina Show) on March 1, 2010 at 10pm ET/PT (9pm Central) and an exclusive one-hour, behind-the-scenes special will also air on the Univision Network at a later date to be announced.
All proceeds derived from donations, iTunes downloads and retail sales of “Somos El Mundo” will be used directly by the We Are The World Foundation to benefit the Haitian cause in charitable and relief efforts.
