Fugees Stars Reunite

Former FUGEES LAURYN HILL and WYCLEF JEAN reunited onstage on Friday (18MAR05), at a concert in Malaysia to raise money for tsunami-devastated communities.

The pair joined performers including actor JACKIE CHAN, BACKSTREET BOYS, BLACK EYED PEAS and BOYZ II MEN before 15,000 fans at the seven-hour FORCES OF NATURE event.

They sang Fugees hits KILLING ME SOFTLY, READY OR NOT

and FU-GEE-LA.

During an emotionally-charged gig, Jean lead the crowd in a chant of "We'll never forget the tsunami victims" and instructed the stadium lights to be turned off while crowd members waved lighted mobile phones.

The concert, at Kuala Lumpur's Stadium Putra, raised a staggering $2.6 million (GBP1.4 million) for tsunami-affected areas in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India.
