    Lovely song

    This is a great song, with superb lyrics and sung beautifully. Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and the rest of the gang really did it again. The video is awesome as well. A must buy/download song if you're into pop music and peaceful music

    Each voice has a different flavor to it. Each flavor makes it more and more beautiful. I recommend you to listen to the title song. It makes me believe. I don't like some of the artists music but then when they mix their voices with other voices. It's very powerful. My parents bought this when it first came out in 1985. I've been listening to it ever since I was three years old. The first time I heard it I fell in love with the flavors. I hope you like it as well.
