Michael Jackson’s song has been remade over and over again. The main message is that every single person has the choice to brighten up someone else’s life. It’s a great song for people of all ages, and has continued to be popular and relevant. In fact, with the recent attacks in France, this song should be more relevant than ever.
This version was made for the people of Ethiopia, who had suffered a major famine at the time.
If you loved seeing so many artists singing for a worthy cause, you’ll be glad to know that a new version was made 25 years later! This time, the song was made for the people of Haiti, who went through a taumatising earthquake.
