Here’s our chronological guide to relief records of the Band Aid Era.
Top Stars: Will Smith, Garth Brooks, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Tiffany, William Shatner, Luther Vandross, Kenny G The Cause: U. Troops in Desert Storm “Voices That Care” features a genuinely bizarre mix of actors and super-glossy musicians.
It remains in constant December rotation right alongside “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and, in certain pockets of Brooklyn and Staten Island, “Dominick the Donkey.” What has not carried on through the decades, however, is the immediate Band-Aid-spawned explosion of fundraising singles recorded in studios packed with superstars.
