Blige, Diddy, Cassie, Andra Day, The Game, Tori Kelly, V. Boseman, Jessie J, French Montana, Justin Timberlake, DJ Khaled, Usher, Nicole Scherzinger, A$AP Rocky, Jaden Smith and a 40-member children’s choir.
“#WHERESTHELOVE” was written by will.i.am, Alan Pineda, Jamie Gomez, Justin Timberlake, Jayceon Taylor, Rakim Mayers, Khaled (DJ Khaled) Khaled and Giorgio Tuinfort and produced by will.i.am and Giorgio Tuinfort. The “Where’s The Love?” video was directed by Michael Jurkovac.
