Young Artists for Haiti

First off, I have to say that I’m somewhat out of my element writing about a topic such as this. It’s very different for me… But sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zones, for the sake of the “greater good.”

I saw a music video yesterday that moved me to no end. The song was called Wavin’ Flag, and although it sounded familiar, I couldn’t place it in any regard. Now I don’t want to forget it (not that it will be possible to, with the media…), and I want to shout out loud about it and share it with the world. It’s that profound.

It’s a song—unlike many others—that is not only great to listen to, but has tremendous meaning. It’s a tribute to Haiti, by a whole host of great Canadian artists, such as Nelly Furtado, Sam Roberts Band, Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber…to name a few. It’s a similar but modern concept of “We Are The World,” the iconic tribute from the 80’s, to less developed countries.

It’s a beautiful and moving song. I was emotional watching it (to my surprise). And I’ve never seen so much spirit shine through from so many artists at one sitting like that… It was really special.

But it’s more than that… It’s raising awareness and money for a precious cause—to help Haiti.

In support of Haiti, I felt compelled to spread the word and raise awareness where I can. I urge those who both love music and care about helping, to, at the very least, check out this song.

Words I’ve seen people use to describe it...“beautiful,” “love,” “inspirational,”

You just have to see the video and hear it for yourself. It’s well worth the time—and cause… Lend your support.
