Haiti

On January 12 2010, a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the republic of Haiti. Before this earthquake, Haiti was a poor country, and most Haitians were living on less than 1 U.S. dollar per day. When this earthquake happened, many of people were trapped in the rubble, and they had no homes or shelter. Many organizations acted quickly and started suppling food and temporary shelters. On February 1st, dozens of artists (including Pink, Lil Wanye, Kanye West, Nick Jonas, LL Cool J, Robin Thieke, Celine Dion, Akon, Rob Thomas, Wyclef, Jeff Bridges, Vince Vaughn, Barbra Streisand, Jordin Sparks, Good Charlotte’s Madden brothers, Tony Bennett, Josh Groban, Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Keri Hilson, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Katharine McPhee, Sean Garrett, Will.I.Am, Carlos Santana, Melanie Fiona, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus, Busta Rhymes, Nicole Scherzinger, Nicole Richie, Usher, Julianne Hough, Raphael Saadiq, Zac Brown, India Arie, “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, Musiq Soulchild, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Fonzworth Bentley, Kid Cudi, Iyaz, Bizzy Bone, Nipsey Hussle, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, Trey Songz, Faith Evans, Mya and Gladys Knight.)gathered to record “We are the world” for Haiti. 25 years ago, the song was recorded to help Africa, and now it is here to help Haiti. If you buy and download it from iTunes, part of the profit will go to rebuilding Haiti. Here is the video.
