TOWN OF HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – It’s a familiar song many people know and love. Now the 1985 hit “We are the World,” by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, has some local flair.
More than 70 musicians on Long Island brought their talents together from a distance to create a so-called “quarantine mix.” They recorded snippets from their homes in places like Huntington, Levittown and Smithtown to show we may be separated right now, but we’re still united.
“Our family friends – Adam Seely and Kristin Seely – I got an email from them a couple weeks ago,” Huntington music teacher Corina Antonucci said. “’We have an idea, we want to do this song. Here are the instructions, just send us a video clip of you doing this, and we’re going to put it all together in one clip.’”
