NEW YORK — The first planeload of food, medicine and clothing bought with royalties from the hit song "We Are the World" left New York today for the famine-stricken people of Ethiopia and Sudan.
Marlon Jackson, brother of Michael Jackson, accompanied the relief supplies on a flight that originated in Los Angeles.
Among those at Kennedy Airport to see the shipment off was Diana Ross. "We made music," Ross said. "Now we're talking about saving lives and spreading love."
