11 days before his death Kenny tweeted,
“We Are The World.” A special experience I loved 35 years ago & think of often. The first night of recording studio tracks (1/22/85) took place at my Lion Share Recording Studio in L.A. This original sheet music belongs to Ken Kragen, who managed me then & organized the event.”
