FLASHBACK: Soap Opera Stars Sing on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' including Victoria Rowell, Rick Hearst, Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves

In 1992, Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla, The Young and the Restless), Rick Hearst (Alan-Michael on Guiding Light at the time), Matthew Ashford (ex-Jack, Days of Our Lives), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer, Days of Our Lives), Scott Reeves (ex-Ryan, The Young and the Restless), Michael Damian (ex-Danny, The Young and the Restless), Wally Kurth (Ned, General Hospital) and Brenda Epperson (ex-Ashley, The Young and the Restless) appeared on the The Oprah Winfrey Show, to perform, "The Eyes of A Child."

At the time, the Los Angeles Times reported:


In the tradition of "We Are the World" and "Voices That Care," 38 daytime soap opera stars have joined forces to record the anthem "The Eyes of a Child." The project is intended to help fight child abuse in the United States and Canada."

I remember when this first aired on Oprah and it's wonderful to be able to see it again.  But now, so many questions come to mind.  Who knew Rick Hearst had such a great voice and why doesn't Ric Lansing break into song to romance Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) on General Hospital? Will Victoria Rowell ever return to Genoa City as Drucilla Winters Barber? Did Scott Reeves (who was once in a country music duo) really allow his wife Melissa to sing with another man, even though it was Matthew Ashford?

As we ponder these questions, the video below will help you take a look back in time and enjoy "The Eyes Of a Child."
