Young Artists for Haiti Release Charity Anthem
March 11, 2010
More than 50 Canadian musicians lend their voices to single.
A constellation of more than 50 Canadian stars – including Jim Cuddy – gathered in Vancouver’s The Warehouse Studio last month to record a song in aid of the victims of the Haiti earthquake. Spearheaded by legendary music producer Bob Ezrin and three-time 2010 Juno Award nominee K’naan under the banner Young Artists for Haiti, the song and video – a brand new rendition of K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag” – will be available for sale wherever music is sold digitally as of Friday, March 12 at 12:01am ET. All proceeds from the sale of the single will go to Free The Children, War Child Canada and World Vision Canada in support of their on-the-ground efforts in Haiti.
“I’m honoured to have experienced the soulful energies of so many talented individuals who contributed their voices and expertise to ‘Wavin’ Flag’,” says K’naan. “The unity and spirit of everyone involved in the recording reminds us that we all share in the responsibility to help. We can’t let the situation in Haiti fall off the public’s agenda.”
