    Description

    USA For Africa "We Are the World" Poster Signed by Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Diana Ross and More (1985) A spectacular collection of signatures from the performers on the 1985 "We Are the World" charity single on a B&W poster in a matching black frame. It's the ultimate collector's item from this historic musical charity event.

    Has tremendous eye appeal due to at least half-a-dozen different colored markers used for the performers' autographs, which offset them brilliantly from the poster's all-B&W graphics. Stevie Wonder's fingerprint even appears right under - appropriately - Smokey Robinson's signature.

    Other musicians found here include Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, Quincy Jones, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Kenny Rogers, Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis, Dan Aykroyd, Harry Belafonte, Lindsey Buckingham, Kim Carnes, Sheila E., Daryl Hall, La Toya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, John Oates, Jeffrey Osborne, Anita Pointer, Ruth Pointer and Dionne Warwick.

    This is the second of the only two posters all of these musicians are known to have signed on that magical day. In our last auction (July) the first one sold for $23,125, and our consignor was so pleased that he decided he could part with his 'keeper' one, which actually has a few more sigs than the previous one.

    Contains a list of the artists who signed on USA for Africa stationery, attached to the backing paper. Newly framed (in glass) in a handsome black frame to an overall 24 1/2 x 28 1/2". In Very Good Plus condition with some soiling in the bottom right corner. LOA from PSA/DNA. COA from Heritage Auctions.
