Stars shine in telethon for Haiti
ONCE again the international stellar community, broadcasting live from New York, London, Los Angeles and Haiti on MTV, YouTube and most major American networks, proved they could work together at short notice to raise funds.
Viewers of the Hope for Haiti telethon were treated to solo performances from Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin of Coldplay accompanying Beyonce on the piano. The R&B superstar's rendition of her song Halo included the altered lyric: "Haiti, we can see your halo/I pray you won't fade away."
Aid For Haiti will be fuelled by the release of a new single from rapper Jay-Z composed in collaboration with Bono and the Edge. © Observer
