Wow!! Interesting!
 
On this day:
At 28th January of 1985, the recording took place for "We Are The World", the US equivalent of Band Aid at A&M Studios in Hollywood, Los Angeles. 

"We Are the World" is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album "We Are the World".

Following Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" project in the UK, an idea for the creation of an American benefit single for African famine relief came from activist Harry Belafonte, who, along with fundraiser Ken Kragen, was instrumental in bringing the vision to reality.

This song was recorded on January 28, 1985, the day of the American Music Awards. Since the artists were all in town for the awards, it was much easier to get them together to record the single.

The stars who sang solos were, in order, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Kenny Rogers, James Ingram, Billy Joel, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Willie Nelson, Al Jarreau, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Logins, Steve Perry, Daryl Hall, Michael Jackson (again), Huey Lewis, Cyndi Lauper, and Kim Carnes. Bob Dylan and Ray Charles were also featured on the song and given close-ups in the video. Singers in the chorus who did not get solos include Belafonte, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, The Pointer Sisters, LaToya Jackson, Bob Geldof, Sheila E., and Waylon Jennings.

Quincy Jones was responsible for managing the egos of all the stars. It went very smoothly considering some very famous people did not get to sing a line. Most of the singers knew Jones personally and respected his wishes that they check their egos at the door.

As the music world came together in the spirit of giving, Bob Geldof organized Live Aid later that year. Live Aid was a benefit concert held simultaneously in Philadelphia and London. At the Philadelphia concert, Lionel Richie came out and led a performance of this as the last song of the show.

Awarded numerous honors, including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award, and a People's Choice Award, the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters, and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of "We Are the World" and raised over $63 million for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US.

Very cool! I'd love to do this!
 
This canopy walkway lets you walk above the trees in cape town

Sure, you could take a regular walk in the woods, but why would you do that when you could walk ABOVE the trees? The Kirstenbosch Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway in Cape Town is a raised walkway that lets visitors see the forest and the trees the way a bird or a monkey might.
The canopy gracefully snakes its way along the treetops in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in South Africa. The walkway reaches a maximum height of 12 meters from the ground and only touches the ground twice. It has several observation points from which visitors can enjoy the surrounding view, but it also descends among the tree canopy in a few places so that they can enjoy the foliage as well.
The 427 ft walkway is open and involves no additional charge, so if you’re ever in South Africa, you should definitely consider paying the park a visit!
