Why was DONNA SUMMER not on WE ARE THE WORLD song?

She had just recorded and album with Quincy Jones; her song "State of Independence" is often called the rehearsal for "We Are The World"; she was friends with Michael Jackson - was she not invited? Or did she decline? I've always wondered why the Queen of Disco, with such popularity and success, was not on the record... but then neither was Aretha, or Barbra, or Melissa Manchester... does anyone know?

    Since we weren't involved in the production , we would have no way of knowing....but a lot of singers were not involved in the record. Maybe they weren't asked or they didn't want to.

    She was too busy getting some 'hot stuff' the night it was recorded.
