The Untold Story of the Race to Record “We Are the World”

Almost four decades ago, 46 of America’s biggest music stars gathered in one studio to record the single “We Are the World.” The record sold 2 million+ copies, and the all-night recording session behind it is the focus of a new Netflix documentary, “The Greatest Night in Pop.” Also present that night was Tom Bahler, a vocal arranger for the song. Hari speaks to him alongside director Bao Nguyen.
