The wrong Lionel
He is best known as the producer of the album Thriller by icon Michael Jackson, and as the producer and conductor of “We Are The World”, the 1985 hit single written by Jackson and Lionel Hampton that raised money for Ethiopian famine relief.
Your story credits Michael Jackson and Lionel Hampton with the writing of the song “We are the World” It was Lionel Ritchie not Lionel Hampton who worked with M Jackson on WATW – produced by Quincy Jones.
Right. We corrected: GBU Editor
