In 1985, producer Quincy Jones gave Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson the assignment of a lifetime. To help fight famine in Africa, he wanted them to write a song for the most famous artists in the music industry to sing together. On his upcoming "Oprah's Master Class" interview, Richie reflects on creating the song that would become an anthem heard worldwide.
"Quincy walks in the door and says, 'I need the song now,'" Richie says. "And a day later, we had the bones for 'We Are the World.'"
