Gloria Estefan is planning to bring together a host of Latin stars including Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira to re-record We Are The World in Spanish to further boost Haiti charity efforts.
Lionel Richie originally collaborated with artists including Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Bruce Springsteen and Tina Turner to record the 1985 single to help good causes in Africa.
The singer brought a new selection of stars together - including Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Pink - for a new version of the track to raise funds to help the earthquake-ravaged Caribbean country.
And now Estefan is planning her own remake of the song in Spanish, with Latin superstars including Ricky Martin, Paulina Rubio, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Enrique Iglesias, according to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
The blogger reports that the Spanish version - titled Somos El Mundo - has been completely translated, and original co-writer Richie has given his permission for the remake.
