Although the Haiti relief effort has lost some attention from the media in recent weeks, this still remains a serious humanitarian issue. To help raise funds, CP Records had some amazing Canadian Urban artists perform a benefit concert to help raise money. We had a chance to speak to Choclair, Karl Wolf, Danny Fernandes, and Belly who all performed at the event.
Look no further. On Tuesday, February 2, Jezebel Burlesque and andPOP will be hosting Get Your Heart on for Haiti.
The night will be packed with some amazing local music, including The Godfrey Medicine Show, Anne Crawley, and Blackie Jacket Jr., while DJ Greg Goldsack spins out some killer beats.
The statement is as follows:
“In light of the recent tragedy in Haiti, we [Alexisonfire] have been thinking about how to help. With a disaster of this magnitude, we feel the easiest way for us to get involved is by donating money.
This will help get clean water, sanitation and medical supplies, food, and temporary shelter to the people who need it the most in Jacmel and Port-au-Prince. We will be donating all the proceeds from our online store for the month of January to the relief effort.”
George Clooney is holding a telethon Jan. 22 to raise disaster relief funds for those affected by the recent earthquake in Haiti, reports E! News. Sources say organizers are planning to ask Twilightstars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to participate.
“She’d jump at the chance to do something to help,” said a source close to Stewart. However, the star is scheduled to be traveling to the Sundance Film Festival to promote Welcome to the Rileys and The Runaways during the telethon.
