NATO officials sing ‘We are the world’ at summit in Turkey
15 May, 2015
In a scene captured on video by a Turkish news agency, a group of NATO foreign ministers and European officials performed a rousing, after-dinner version of “We Are the World,” the 1985 charity single, after a summit meeting in the resort town of Antalya, The New York Times reports.

Video taken from a report by Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency showed the foreign ministers of Turkey and Greece — Mevlut Cavusoglu and Nikos Kotzias — swaying arm in arm and singing the
line, “There’s a choice we’re making — we’re saving our own lives.” Just to their left, a singer encouraged NATO’s secretary-general, Jens Stoltenberg, and the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, to join in.

According to Hurriyet, a Turkish newspaper, Mr. Cavusoglu, host of the dinner, invited his colleagues to join him onstage with members of a local band to sing a “song for peace.”
