Combs, Williams And Latifah To Headline Haiti Benefit
SEAN COMBS, PHARRELL WILLIAMS and QUEEN LATIFAH have signed up to headline a charity concert to help relief efforts in earthquake-hit Haiti.
The stars are spearheading the latest event to raise money for the Caribbean country, which was devastated by a massive tremor earlier this month (Jan10).
The SOS Saving Ourselves - Help for Haiti concert, will take place in Miami, Florida and will be shown on the BET TV network, as well as MTV and VH1, on 5 February (10), according to E! Online.
The night will benefit charities including Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti foundation, as well as CARE, Project Medishare and Children's Safe Drinking Water.
Combs says in a statement, "Words cannot express how I felt watching the catastrophic events unfold in Haiti. I believe it is our duty to come together and help our brothers and sisters in Haiti, especially now, in their greatest hour of need. Together we can make a difference."
George Clooney's recent Hope For Haiti Now telethon raised over $60 million (£37.5 million) for survivors of the earthquake, while another $3 million (£1.87 million) has flooded in from digital downloads of the night's performances.
