What could be the probable reasons for Rod Stewart, Brian Adams , Elton John, Sting not in this beautiful song?

The reason being there nationality is not American?

Thanks & Regards,

Prashant S Akerkar


"USA for Africa" was the American response to the "Band Aid" project ( "Do They Know It's Christmas?", 1984) which featured mainly British and Irish artists, so almost all the artists on "We Are the World" are US-Americans (the founder of Band Aid, Bob Geldorf, who is Irish, sang in the chorus).
Rod Stewart, Elton John and Sting are British and Bryan Adams is Canadian.
