Asian tsunami delays recording of 'We Are the World' sequel

UPI News Service, 01/12/2005 

U.S. music producer Jermaine Dupri has canceled the recording of a sequel to the 1985 hit "We Are the World" because "the timing is not right."

Dupri had planned to record "We Are the Future" at a star-studded party Feb. 14 after the Grammy Awards, but decided this week to call off the session that was to benefit children in war-torn countries, E! Online reported.

Dupri said the destruction of December's tsunami changed everything.

"The timing is not right for us to record a song about the future when so many people have lost their lives," Dupri said in a statement.

Dupri, who was working with Quincy Jones on the "We Are the World" sequel, said he hoped to record "We Are the Future" later this year.
