Hands Across America was a benefit event and publicity campaign staged on Sunday, May 25, 1986 in which approximately 6.5 million people held hands in a human chain for fifteen minutes along a path across the continental United States.

Many participants donated ten dollars to reserve their place in line; the proceeds were donated to local charities to fight hunger and homelessness and help those in poverty.

In order to allow the maximum number of people to participate, the path linked major cities and meandered back and forth within the cities. Just as there were sections where the `line' was six to ten people deep, there were also undoubtedly many breaks in the chain. Enough people participated however that if an average of all the participants had been taken as if spread evenly along the route standing four feet (1.2 m) apart, an unbroken chain across the 48 contiguous states would have been able to be formed.

Hands Across America raised $34 million.

- 45 tours 

De la Nouvelle Zélande ce 45 tours de la mythique chanson HOPELESSLY DEVOTED TO YOU est venu enrichir la collection de notre ami Kay ... et comme le dit notre ami Kay un 45 tours sans la photo d'Olivia n'est pas un vrai 45 tours ...

Pour illustrer ce message et éviter la répétition ... nous vous proposons une version chantée au Japon en 2003 !
