Carlos Santana, Thalia, Alejandro Fernandez, Paulina Rubio and Pitbull are also confirmed to be involved in this project which music video is expected to arrive on March 1.
A number of renowned musicians have been added to the line-up of Gloria Estefan's "We Are the World" Spanish version. Among the newly-announced performers are David Archuleta and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas.
So far, over 30 acts have been confirmed for the project which will also benefit Haitian relief effort like "We Are the World 25". The involved artists include Thalia, Alejandro Fernandez, Paulina Rubio, Luis Fonsi, Carlos Santana, Andy Garcia, Pitbull and Jon Secada.
The song remake will be titled "Somos El Mundo" and is set to be recorded Friday, February 19. Its music video, meanwhile, will be debuted on March 1 on Univision's "Cristina" show. "This means the reach of the song will truly be global, because it's available not only in English but also in Spanish," said Gloria's husband Emilio Estefan, Jr. who is producing the track with Quincy Jones.
This is not the first all-star philantrophic project done by the Estefans to help those in need. Back in 2001, the family produced a star-studded song called "El Ultimo Adios" (The Last Goodbye) to benefit the families of victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
