Harry Belafonte and Don McLean

Here is a clip from the 1986 American Music Awards which sees Belafonte presented with an award for his contribution to the “USA for Africa” project which had led to the inspirational “We are the World” charity record. In his acceptance speech Belafonte recognizes the part played by Don McLean and Harry Chapin in initiating the project after the three had discussed the plight of Africa backstage at a benefit concert in Newberg, NY.
