Dylan is part of the “We Are the World” recording session at A&M record- ing studios in Los Angeles. Arriving about 10 PM, he maintains a low profile throughout an evening of mutual backslapping. At 5:30 AM, Dylan records his solo vocal all four lines of it. He is nervous and uncertain until Stevie Wonder provides some voice-coaching and a piano backing, helping to set Dylan at ease. This moment is immortalised on the official We Are the World video.
