Who Are The Most Charitable Music Stars?
In 1985, Lionel Richie collaborated with a certain Michael Jackson to write 'We Are The World', an American charity single to raise money for Africa, released by a supergroup of musicians named USA For Africa. Richie re-recorded and released the track in 2010 with all proceeds going to victims of the earthquake in Haiti. He is also lauded for his Breast Cancer Foundation fundraising, for whom he raised $3.1 million by playing live at their annual spring gala.
