Netflix posted an “exclusive clip” from the upcoming documentary film titled, The Greatest Night In Pop, which is streaming on January 29, 2024.
The clip shows the moment when Diana Ross kept her eyes open for one superstar amongst the more than three dozen others who were present at the A&M Studios in Los Angeles on the night of January 28, 1985.
Back when the star-studded line of artists recorded the Grammy-winning charity single, We Are the World, the legendary singer asked Hall and Oates star, Daryl Hall, for his autograph.
Ross set off a chain reaction of stars seeking signatures from other stars, according to the new Netflix documentary The Greatest Night in Pop.
In an interview to PEOPLE magazine, the song’s vocal arranger, Tom Bahler, said, “Diana is one of my favorite artists that I’ve ever worked with, but at first, she is so on it that you better be ready for her. So I had my eyes on her, and I saw her coming toward Daryl.”
“Diana was walking toward Daryl, and when she got there, she opened up her book like a little girl getting an autograph and she said, ‘Daryl, I’m your biggest fan. Would you please give me your autograph?’” he further stated, providing insights of the lovely yet iconic moment.
Bahler also recalled how the gesture prompted a surprised reaction from the star-studded room of artists but it wasn’t long before others started doing the same.
Further recalling the event, he continued, “For the next 45 minutes, we all signed each other’s music. It was just like, ‘Wow. When was the lsat time all of us were in the same room?’”
“When Diana said, ‘Would you give me an autograph?’ all of a sudden, we realized what was going on. When it was over, we were family. We were in this together,” Bahler noted.
