You mean the very first one Lionel Richie is singing into? Hard to tell, might be an ELAM 251, though the grille on an ELAM 251 is black an the back. Otherwise I can only see AKG C12, lots of them.

In the video it was a C-12... I have no idea what was actually used on the actual recording.

All the guide vocals that MJ did before the 'big session' were done on a C12... There's footage floating around

The bad thing:

Many "Save Africa" campaigns after and africa still the same place of hunger, war and chaos. Poor africans, so rich in resources, so exploited and pillaged.
'First World" charity sounds to melike 'giving the men a fish and forbidding them the ability to fish'. IMHO.
