"Young Artists for Haiti is a movement to engage Canada's young musicians to continue to inspire an ongoing effort and contribution to Canadian charities for their work to help the people of Haiti overcome the devastation from the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that rocked the country on January 12, 2010. More than 50 of Canada's best and brightest artists gathered at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia to record a rendition of renowned hip hop artist K'naan's "Wavin' Flag". -


"Three months after the earthquake, some of the customary cadence of life has returned. People still argue and laugh, they still fight and kiss under the trees. Babies still cry in the middle of the night. But the neighborhood has changed. We fervently wish that the precarious tents and other reminders of the catastrophe would disappear, yet we remain aware that to go forward we must rebuild with that infamous Tuesday in mind." -

Monday hosts a brief reflection of janurary 12, 2010, where the poorest country in the western hemisphere was hit with a massive earthquake. This particular tragedy culturally awoke the world to high degree; in personal reflection, and global relief efforts. One current example is canada based "artists for haiti" which includes drake and many others. The harvest of the earthquake brought the globe under one collective train of thought: "viv ayiti" which means "long live haiti". In conclusion we close with two great minds at that: mos def and blacksmith's tsidi ibrahim, (jean grae), live at the every drop counts benefit concert.
