Fugees - Fugees Stage Reunion To Honour Penn

Former Fugees stars Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel reunited at a star-studded benefit in New York City on Saturday (05Nov11) to honour philanthropist Sean Penn.
Model Petra Nemcova hosted the party to raise funds for Haiti through her charity Happy Hearts Fund, which rebuilds schools in natural disaster areas, and the toast of the evening was Penn, who picked up the organisation's Lifetime Achievement award for his ongoing work in the earthquake-ravaged nation.
U2 hitmakers Bono and The Edge performed for the Milk star and Haitian natives Jean and Michel sang a set of their hometown carnival favourites.
Also in attendance at the benefit was singer Josh Groban, who also took to the stage and announced his plans to donate instruments to the cause through his own charity, Find Your Light Foundation.
A live auction at the event raised $2.3 million (Gbp1.4 million) for the charity.
