More music for Haiti


    Two more songs aiming to help Haiti have just been released.
     
    First up is Wyclef’s new track “Hold On,” featuring Mavado. It’s an encouraging song that urges listeners to just keep pushing through their situations so they can get to a brighter day.

     
    It almost goes without saying that Clef has dedicated the song to his home country. This time, though, the rapper started off wit a call to action, telling listeners to “go harder for Haiti” by texting his Yele Haiti Foundation.


    According to CNNMoney.com, the charity has hired a new accountant after acknowledging that a few "mistakes" had been made when it came to filing taxes. This news comes just days after Clef denied that Yele had been misappropriating funds in the wake of Haiti’s earthquake.

     

    
  
    And
    Billboard.com reports that Will.I.Am is showing his support for the devastated country by remixing The Who’s  “My Generation.” To add a little more rock edge to his techno-tinged sound, Will got Slash to strum some backup music.

     
    The rapper’s rendition of “My Generation” will debut February 7 at Super Bowl XLIV haltime show, where The Who will be performing. The song will be available for download on iTunes soon after Will leaves the field.
