1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism
Paul McCartney, U2’s Bono and Adam Clayton, David Bowie, Phil Collins, Sting, Boy George and a bunch of other members of big-name ‘80s bands headed into a London studio to record the benefit single “Do They Know It’s Christmas.”
It was a huge hit, and spawned many others – Canada’s “Tears are not Enough” and in America the “We are the World” along with the County Music “We’re all One Family” and Heavy Metal “We’re Stars”.
They all raised money and awareness and had a negative impact in Africa, going into government corruption rather than helping any communities.
For the first time in Billboard chart history, the top three spots are occupied by female artists. #1 is Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”, #2 is Tina Turner with “Typical Male” and #3 is Janet Jackson’s “When I Think Of You”.

It became the second-highest-grossing film worldwide in 1992 with the soundtrack becoming the best-selling soundtrack of all time, selling more than 42 million copies worldwide.
Whitney Houston went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop)’, written by Babyface and taken from the film ‘Waiting To Exhale’, it gave Whitney her 11th US No.1.
A statue in Montreux, Switzerland by sculptor Irena Sedlecka was erected as a tribute to Freddie Mercury. Standing almost 10 feet (3 metres) high overlooking Lake Geneva it was unveiled by Freddie’s father and Montserrat Caballé, with bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor also in attendance.

The plague reads: “Freddie Mercury – musician, singer and songwriter” along with the dates he lived in Feltham, between 1964 and 1968.
