Oct: Recording of Michael Jackson’s “What More Can I Give”. Los Angeles, CA
Quote from Wikipedia: “What More Can I Give” (also “Todo Para Ti” in Spanish) is a song written by Michael Jackson and recorded by a supergroup of singers following the September 11, 2001 attacks. The inspiration for the song had initially come to Jackson after a meeting with the President of South Africa Nelson Mandela in the late 1990s. It was to be premiered at a Jackson concert, but failed to be performed by the singer. The song also failed to gain an official release, despite the pop singer having stated that it would be issued as a charity single for the refugees of the Kosovo War, which ended in 1999. Following the September 11 attacks in 2001, Jackson rewrote “What More Can I Give”. The new version of the song was recorded shortly afterward by Jackson and other artists such as Beyoncé Knowles, Celine Dion, Luther Vandross, Mariah Carey, Usher and Carlos Santana. In addition, a Spanish language version of the song was recorded. Entitled “Todo Para Ti”, its lyrics were written by musician Ruben Blades. “What More Can I Give” was scheduled for release as a charity single, in the hope that $50 million would be raised to aid the survivors and the families of victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The plan, however, never came to fruition and the reasons why have varied between sources and the individuals involved. One newspaper stated that the release of the song was abandoned after it emerged that the executive producer had directed pornographic movies. The producer, Marc Schaffel, denied that he was to blame, and offered the opinion that the song was not released as part of a marketing ploy by Sony Music. Following a year of being unreleased and unaired, “What More Can I Give” was played on the radio for the first time in late 2002. The debut airing was made without permission by radio station WKTU-FM in New York. The following year, on October 27, 2003, “What More Can I Give” was made available to the public by way of digital download. Proceeds from the sale of the song went to children’s charities.
“What More Can I Give” was recorded in 2001 by a number of artists. The project had received an “overwhelming response from major artists all over the world”, with musicians such as Destiny's Child, the Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and Carlos Santana offering to lend their voices to the track. The recording process was held in Los Angeles, California and destinations reachable by Michael Jackson’s private plane and mobile production unit. The all-star benefit followed a similar Jackson-effort: “We Are the World”, which raised millions of dollars for famine relief in Africa. The recording of “What More Can I Give” was completed in October 2001. In addition to the English-language version, a Spanish version of the song was recorded. Entitled “Todo Para Ti”, the track features several of the musicians on the English version, as well as Latin artists such as Alejandro Sanz and Cristian Castro, who only appear on the Spanish-language version. The title for “Todo Para Ti” translates to “Everything For You” in English. Producer and songwriter K.C. Porter had directly translated the title of “What More Can I Give” initially, but it was changed after Jackson expressed that he felt it was too clumsy.
  “What More Can I Give” was eventually made available as a digital download on October 27, 2003. The websites whatmorecanigive.com and musicforgiving.com sold the song at a price of $2 per download, with a portion of the proceeds from the fee going towards children’s charities such as Oneness, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and the International Child Art Foundation. The charities support arts programs to eliminate racism, increase education and connect children throughout the world, respectively. The download project had been set up by Jackson with the American media company Clear Channel Communications.
