WTF is Jeff Bridges and Vince Vaughn doing in it?

And the whole rapping part and Wyclef's ooga booga talk. WYF?!?! I guess that's the Haitian language?

Celine Dion is better than Cyndi Lauper though. Jamie Foxx does a great Ray Charles.

I guess every generation has their wars, their tragedies. They're entitled to draw awareness to these conditions in whatever way they choose. Nice to see a number of folks reprise their roles from the first time around. Very touching.

Creole. He's Haitian, and had done a lot for his country before the earthquake. Donated a lot of time and a ton of money. Saw a deal on him(think it was 60 minutes) one time and he was huge to them.

Wow. Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Barbara Steisand and a whole bunch of autotune. That was like watching a giant car crash.

Did a bit of embezzling as well. Personally spent a million of the charities money on personal travel and personal needs. Paid himself a ton of money for his appearances.

Wyclef Jean Charity's Funny Money
Haiti earthquake aid pours into group that has enriched singer

JANUARY 14--The Haiti earthquake has already triggered hundreds of thousands of donations to musician Wyclef Jean's charitable foundation, which expects to raise upwards of $1 million a day in the disaster's wake. However, Internal Revenue Service records show the group has a lackluster history of accounting for its finances, and that the organization has paid the performer and his business partner at least $410,000 for rent, production services, and Jean's appearance at a benefit concert. Though the Wyclef Jean Foundation, which does business as Yele Haiti Foundation, was incorporated 12 years ago--and has been active since that time--the group only first filed tax returns in August 2009. That month, the foundation provided the IRS with returns covering calendar years 2005, 2006, and 2007--the only periods for which it has publicly provided a glimpse at its financial affairs. In 2006, Jean's charity reported contributions of $1 million, the bulk of which came from People magazine in exchange for the first photos of a pregnant Angelina Jolie (the actress reportedly directed that the publication's payment go to Jean's charity, not her personally). As seen on the following pages from the foundation's 2006 tax return, the group paid $31,200 in rent to Platinum Sound, a Manhattan recording studio owned by Jean and Jerry Duplessis, who, like Jean, is a foundation board member. A $31,200 rent payment was also made in 2007 to Platinum Sound. The rent, tax returns assure, "is priced below market value." The recording studio also was paid $100,000 in 2006 for the "musical performance services of Wyclef Jean at a benefit concert." That six-figure payout, the tax return noted, "was substantially less than market value." The return, of course, does not address why Jean needed to be paid to perform at his own charity's fundraiser. But the largest 2006 payout--a whopping $250,000--went to Telemax, S.A., a for-profit Haiti company in which Jean and Duplessis were said to "own a controlling interest." The money covered "pre-purchased...TV airtime and production services" that were part of the foundation's "outreach efforts" in Haiti. No further description of these services was offered, though the return claimed that "the fees paid are below market" and that the use of Telemax was the "most efficient way of providing these services." The group's tax returns also report "consultant" payments totaling $300,000 between 2005-2007, while the 2006 return reported nearly $225,000 in "promotion and PR" costs. These expenses are not itemized further in the IRS returns. (6 pages)

He's a prince. And still had the guts to spotlight this We Are The World 25 video. Guts.

I did notice there appears to be alot more digital manipulation with voices in this new version than in the old one.
