Serving two good causes at once, What’s Going On: All-Star Tribute benefits the United Way’s September 11th Fund and Artists Against AIDS Worldwide with performances from stars such as Bono, Jennifer Lopez, Destiny’s Child, ‘N Sync, Lil’ Kim, the Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears. Originally conceived as a way to bring attention, as well as relief, to the victims of the global AIDS epidemic in impoverished regions such as Africa, the EP features nine interpretations of Marvin Gaye’s classic “What’s Going On.”

This song was released in 2001 before the September 11 attacks.
