'Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)' raising funds for Haiti

19
Produced by Swizz Beatz and Declan Gaffney, 'Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)' will be performed live tonight from London by Jay-Z, Rihanna, Bono and Edge as part of the 'Hope For Haiti Now' global telethon, produced by George Clooney, Wyclef Jean and MTV Networks.

'Sitting in the studio and watching Haiti hurting, I knew immediately I had to do something,' said Swizz Beatz. 'I reached out to my friends Bono and Jay-Z and asked for their help. Jay and Rihanna sent their vocals and that same night Bono and I went into the studio.' Swizz Beatz added, 'It's important we as a global community all come together to help. Haiti needs us right now.'

The track will be available through iTunes this evening as part of a special package from the 'Hope For Haiti Now' telethon airing at 8pm ET/PT. The relief organizations that will benefit from the telethon and special album are Partners in Health, Oxfam America, the Red Cross, UNICEF, Yele Haiti Foundation, United Nations World Food Program and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Proceeds from Hope for Haiti Now will be split among each organization's individual funds for Haiti earthquake relief.

Telethon so sad but so right
It sounded so amazing - what a great collaboration for a great cause. Bono & Rihanna sounded great together (although it sounded as though Rihanna's mike was more amplified (sic)... just say'in). Loved the whole show although I cried through most of it. For some strange reason, my favorite part was Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, & Keith Urban. I never thought I liked country but may have to give it more of a listen.

Raising Funds 4 Haiti
Dear Bono & Edge, Thank you for caring & for creating a ripple to raise funds for the relief organizations that are in the field helping the people of Haiti. Since the quake, I donated, wrote a blog & twitted like crazy about Haiti but I just had to pull out the card to donate again tonight to support your effort. Seeing the world coming together to help Haiti, gives me hope for humanity. Regards, Michelle Dunn AKA Dunn4good

Haiti Mon Amour...
It is good to know that so many citizens of the world believe that an earthquake is not the end of Haiti. It is good to know that so many citizens of Haiti believe that tomorrow will be a beautiful day.

Haiti
Just pre-ordered the album and finished watching the telethon. I loved the hopeful performance- beautiful song! I was proud (but not surprised) that you guys were a part of this. We need to do what we can now, but also in the upcoming weeks/months, and keep Haiti in our prayers and good thoughts.

God Bless Haiti
Since the late 60's modern music and the people who perform it for us have always come through in times of need. Thank God for them and may we find a new Haiti soon.

Good Humantarians
It's a great thing that all U2 has accomplished and earned that they still have human in them to share their spirit and generosity to the world. Thank you for making it loud and clear that others need help in the time of need! We love you dschaffer10@gmail.com
