STUDENTS CREATE COVER VIDEO OF “WE ARE THE WORLD”
Students in CreativeArts learned about the “We Are the World” project, developed by musicians in 1985 to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa, then again remade in 2010 to benefit Haiti, following the 7.0M earthquake that devastated the country. Students then made a video, filmed by award-winning producer, Emmai Alaquiva, of Ya Momz House.
