Wyclef Jean and George Clooney Reveal Some 'Hope for Haiti' Songs


While the host of NYC-based concert promises to bring 'Creole 101', the presenter of L.A. concert says Jennifer Hudson will perform a song fans 'never heard her sing before.'

During rehearsal sessions for the upcoming benefit concert "Hope for Haiti", hosts Wyclef Jean and George Clooney share what organizers have planned for the cause. Wyclef said he will perform a traditional Creole track, while George revealed other song lists.

"I'mma start with 'Rivers of Babylon,' " Wyclef told MTV. "Then, after that, I'm gonna go to a traditional Creole song, one of my songs called 'Yele.' Then we're gonna close it out with some Racine. Racine is roots music of the country. Everybody loves Haiti. I haven't heard too many people speaking Creole yet. That's the Haitian language in French. Tomorrow night on my set, I'm gonna teach y'all Creole 101."

As for George, he revealed, "We're gonna have 18 songs, and you're gonna get to hear Jennifer Hudson sing a song you never heard her sing before. John Legend is singing 'Motherless Child'; it's just great. We're gonna have some amazing performances, and I think that's gonna make it last a little longer than just a telethon."

Musicians like Madonna, Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and Mary J. Blige will deliver live on-stage performances, while such actors as Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper will help on handling the phone lines.
