Michael Jackson has finished recording “What More Can I Give,” his new star-studded single that he hopes will raise more than $50 million for families of victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
Since the tragedy Jackson has been crisscrossing the country to collaborate with Ricky Martin, Santana, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Tom Petty, Destiny’s Child’s Beyonce Knowles, the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, Aaron Carter, Mya, Luis Miguel, Ziggy Marley, Gloria Estefan, Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman, Skakira and numerous others.
“I have no other agenda other than to just see some of these families smile again,” said Jackson, who was in New York City at the time of the attacks. “A song is a mantra, something you repeat over and over. And we need peace, we need giving, we need love, we need unity. I want the whole world to sing this song.”
Jackson also helped organize the USA for Africa single, “We Are the World,” sixteen years ago. The song has raised more than $65 million to help fight starvation in Africa.
