On September 5 and 7, 2001, an ensemble of superstar artists gathered in New York City to record a new version of "What's Going On," Marvin Gaye's classic call for compassion, healing and love, in order to raise awareness and funds to fight against the scourge of AIDS in Africa.

In the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, Artists Against AIDS Worldwide, realizing the recording's powerful healing message extended beyond the scope of the project's original aim, decided to donate additional proceeds to benefit The United Way's September 11th Fund as well as the AIDS relief effort which includes the Global AIDS Alliance, among others.
