    Jackie and Tito were there! Go watch the music video. Only Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie were not there. Michael, Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Randy, and LaToya were all there.

    Well, Quincy put up a sign that read “Check your egos at the door.” Guess that did it.

    What I heard is that Prince didn't wanted participate but then he changed his mind and asked Quincy if he could go there and play some guitar but Quincy said there was no need. Don't know if that's true.

    The 1985 American Music Awards ceremony was on Monday, January 28, the same night as the recording of We Are World. A lot of the members of USA For Africa were at the American Music Awards ceremony, and headed to the studio afterwards to record We Are The World. I can't find the actual reason as to why Jermaine Jackson did not participate in We Are The World anywhere on google.
