i wait with you...


to those sleeping in the streets,

just holding on for tomorrow,

yearning for food and water,

still fighting for survival,

to those suffering in silence,

waiting to locate loved ones,

i wait with you.

*On Friday, January 22, 2010 at 8 p.m. ET, Wyclef Jean, founder of the grassroots non-profit organisation, Yele Haiti, will be joined by actor George Clooney and CNN's Anderson Cooper in hosting MTV Networks' "HOPE FOR HAITI," the global telethon to air commercial-free across ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT.

Performers will include BONO and The Edge of U2, Sting, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Jay Z, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Keith Urban, John Legend, Cold Play, Madonna and Justin Timberlake. I do hope you get a chance to tune in and show your support for the people of Haiti.

Yéle Haiti. one love.

Thanks for the information. I knew something was in the works, now I know when to watch.

Sometimes when people hurt our hearts just swell with the pain and love.
