Hope for Haiti Telethon plus Life In Haiti Before the Quake

April 7, 2011

In response to the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti, Wyclef Jean will join George Clooney and CNN's Anderson Cooper in hosting MTV Networks' “Hope for Haiti,” global telethon to raise funds for the fallen Carribean Island of Port-au-Prince.

The telethon will be hosted by Clooney in Los Angeles, Jean in New York and Cooper in Haiti, and will air commercial-free across ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT on Friday, January 22, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

All donations will directly benefit Oxfam America, Partners in Health, Red Cross, UNICEF and Wyclef's Yele Haiti Foundation.

More than 100 of the biggest film, television, and music stars are expected to take part in the special, with a list so far that includes: Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Swizz Beatz, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Dave Matthews, Kid Rock, Keith Urban, and Sheryl Crow… just to name a few.

Even during times of crisis, a woman's gotta comb her hair 🙂
