  • Lonely fear lights up the sky
    Can't help but wonder why
    You're so far away

    There, you had to take a stand
    In someone else's land
    Life can be so strange

    I wish we never had to choose
    To either win or lose
    That we could find a way (We could find a way)

    But I won't turn my back again(turn my back again)
    Your honor I'll defend
    So hurry home, and 'til then (til then)

    Stand tall, stand proud!
    Voices that care are crying out loud
    And when you close your eyes tonight
    Feel in your heart how our love burns bright (hurry home. ooh)

    I'm not here to justify the cause
    Or to count up all the loss
    That's all been done before

    I just can't let you feel alone
    When there's so much love at home
    We're sending out to you

    All the courage that you've known
    The bravery you've shown
    Clearly lights the way

    We pray to make the future bright
    To make the wrong things right

    Right or wrong, we're all praying you remain strong
    That's why we're all here and singing along

    Stand tall, stand proud!
    Voices that care are crying out loud
    And when you close your eyes tonight
    Know in your heart how our love burns bright

    Voices that care are crying out loud
    And when you close your eyes tonight
    Feel in your heart how our love burns bright

    You are the voice
    You are the light

    Stand tall, stand proud!
    Voices that care are crying out loud
    And when you close your eyes tonight
    Feel in your heart how our love burns bright

    Stand tall, stand proud!
    Voices that care are crying out loud
    And when you close your eyes tonight
    Feel in your heart how our love burns bright

    You are the voice and the guiding light
    Feel in your heart how our love burns bright Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • R from Orange County, CaAfter Brenda Russell is Jani Lane, former lead singer of the rock band Warrant (died in 2011), one of the best of the 80's rockers. He re-appears toward the end after Mark Knopfler's guitar solo and Bobby Brown, but before Celion Dion's second appearance.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdIt's Magic Johnson, sorry and Michael Jordan (NBA All Stars). Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits is the guitarist.
    I think David Foster should redo this with since its been a decade since this song was released.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThe video for this is not available on DVD perhaps because it was a special benefit. It is on YouTube but the comments aren't great.
    It's great to see all these celebrities together. The choir included Wayne Gretszky (David Foster's favorite hockey player), Kenny Roger, Al Jarreau, Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau, Meryl Streep, Kevin Costner, Whoopi Goldberg, The Fresh Prince (Will Smith) who also did a rap during the song, Michael Johnson, Helen Reddy, Paul Anka, Richard Gere and many more.
