Last night, New York’s high society, friends of the Maccioni family and regulars of Le Cirque joined the famed restaurateur and New York icon Sirio Maccioni and his family along with illustrious chefs and celebrities in the arts, politics, business and fashion to celebrate the much anticipated opening party of Sirio Ristorante New York at The Pierre, A Taj Hotel. Some of the VIP guests included legendary singer Tony Bennett, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Martha Stewart and Ivana Trump.
Quincy Jones has been asked to remake ‘We Are The World' countless times over the past 25 years and every time it has been quickly shot down. Only after the devastation in Haiti was Quincy inspired to re-make the classic and just like 25 years ago, it's going to be big ... real big!
More than 80 musical artists joined forces at Henson Studios in Los Angeles on Monday to start recording the epic classic. Quincy Jones will be producing along with Will.I.Am and RedOne, and RedOne couldn't be more pleased to help, "Having Quincy, our father of music ... and Lionel Richie asking me to contribute and help, I said of course, because this is not about me," he said. "It's about Haiti."
