Don't worry, everyone: We don't have another We Are The World 25 on our hands! Instead, A-listers including Carrie Underwood, Janet Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Seacrest, Adam Lambert, Patti LaBelle and others answered Ricky Martin's request to add small spoken video clips to a new PSA for Habitat for Humanity and The Ricky Martin Foundation benefiting Haiti earthquake Relief.

The recent father of two and Latin superstar also has this to say, "Every aspect of people's lives in Haiti has been disrupted, and in many cases, almost completely destroyed. Although hearts and homes are shattered, spirits aren't broken. Meeting the families in Port Au Prince affected my soul and I knew I had to do all I could to protect the children. So, just like we did after the tsunami in Thailand, the Ricky Martin Foundation partnered with Habitat for Humanity and created a long-term plan. We then reached out to the artistic community and asked people to join us in our call to action. The response was overwhelming—over twenty top musicians, artists and TV personalities helped us create the RMFHaiti video. Now we need your help. Please join us as we rebuild hope, rebuild homes and rebuild Haiti. Thank you."

Also look for cameos by Jimmy Fallon, Eva Longoria, Linkin Park, Sofia Vergara, Chris Pine and Dave Matthews in the clip, which you can watch here to hear what they have to say (notice I didn't say sing or Auto-tune, people! Relax....).
