Hope for Haiti

So, did anyone watch the Hope for Haiti benefit concert last night? In my humble opinion all the performances were stellar. I think it was the best musical fund-raiser I've ever seen. George Clooney did a most excellent job.

Hubby really liked the song "Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)," that Rihanna, Jay-Z and Bono (with The Edge) did together. He particularly liked how Rihanna sang the chorus.

I really liked the Neil Young/Dave Matthews collaboration on "Alone and Forsaken." Niel looked SOOOOOOO intense, much more so than usual. The grandfather of grunge is looking kind of old, but his voice is still the same. A-Maze-Ing.

And here's a link to Hope for Haiti Now where you can donate. Although the focus is mostly on the city of Port Au Prince, there are towns and cities that have yet to see, eleven days later, any kind of relief or media coverage. And who knows how many small villages have been destroyed.


  1. I saw it, Bish. I loved Stevie Wonder's performance. He's still amazing. Poor Haiti. I wonder if there will ever be enough we can do to get that place on it's feet. Maybe a miracle will happen and people will return to the land, making Haiti the fertile place it once was. We actually owe Haiti a great debt. We were the ones who saddled it with reparations after they rebelled against the French and got it off on the wrong footing in the first place.

  2. I missed that concert! I'm so bummed. I'm going to google the "Stranded" performance, though. It sounds terrific.

  3. I only watched a little bit. My daughter and I talked about G. Clooney. Great things he's done.

  4. Oh Bish, I missed it. It sounds as though it were extraordinary though. Thanks for all you are doing to help the people of Haiti. Blessings to you.
