We Are The World 25 for Haiti: Stand Out

Did you get a chance to see the video for We Are The World 25 for Haiti that premiered prior to the Olympic opening ceremony?

I couldn't help watching it with all these stars in the video singing along together with various solos, and thinking that Jennifer Hudson's vocals are incredible in this video. She sticks out in a crowd of stars.

There's obviously tons of stars, Michael & Janet Jackson, the Jonas brothers, Pink, Usher, Akon, Barbara Streisand and tons more, but to me...Hudson was a complete stand out.

Olympic music sidenote: 16 year-old Nikki Yanofsky's singing of 'O Canada' was far more impressive than her "boyfriend" Justin Bieber's introduction that kicks off "We Are The World"

I didn't see it, but I'm not too fond of J-Hud's singing. She always seems to be doing too much. Didn't even know Streisand was alive :), though.

@ didn't know if Barbara was alive???

She's only 67. She's not really that old at all.

Her film career lacks some interest (with her only role in the past decade being Meet The Fockers, in a role she will be reprising in another sequel this year).

But dead! Yikes!

i agree that jennifer hudson is a standout in this video. i thought the same when i first saw it. and i don't believe she over sings in it. if you saw her perform at the oscars, one would have noticed how more temperate she was in her singing compared to, let's say, aguilera.
