The HOPE FOR HAITI concert/telethon that was shown on all the major TV and cable networks Friday was beautifully crafted. Major stars and some divas were in Los Angeles, New York and London. Many were manning the donation phones and NONE were introduced by name. No celebrity badges were worn. As each performer (see list below) appeared, all they did was sing. No histrionics, no “do you know who I am?” It was also very touching to hear from Wyclef Jean and other natives of Haiti throughout the program. Hats off to George Clooney who produced the entire event.
I was watching CNN and my friends were texting me back in forth as to who was on. We had everyone correct but Matt Morris (who sang with Justin Timberlake). Sorry man. I thought you were Jason Mraz! LOL
