"Somos El Mundo 25 Por Haiti" is a 2010 song and charity single recorded by the Latin supergroup Artists for Haiti and written by Emilio Estefan and his wife Gloria Estefan. It is a Spanish language remake of the 1985 hit song "We Are the World", which was written by American musicians Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and was recorded by USA for Africa to benefit famine relief in Africa.
Around the time that the English remake version of the song "We Are the World 25 for Haiti" was released, it was announced that Emilio and Gloria Estefan were planning to record a Spanish version of the song. "Somos El Mundo 25 Por Haiti" was recorded on February 19, 2010, and the song was premiered on March 1, during the El Show de Cristina television show. It has been confirmed that all revenue from "Somos El Mundo 25 Por Haiti" will go to earthquake relief in Haiti.
Emilio and Gloria Estefan, along with Quincy Jones and other singers joined forces with Univision to record a Spanish version of "We Are the World" to raise money for Haitian earthquake victims. The song was adapted by Emilio and Gloria Estefan. Univision was a co-producer and distributor of the song.
This version was recorded on February 19, 2010 at American Airlines Arena in Miami. Olga Tañon was the first artist to put her voice on February 17, 2010 because previous commitments prevented her from participating in the recording group. The singer said that she was assigned to interpret a stanza which corresponds to the one Cyndi Lauper sung in the original 1985 version. Others who participated in a previous recording session were Jose Feliciano, José Luis Rodríguez and Ricardo Montaner. The song premiered during El Show de Cristina on March 1, 2010.
