George Clooney’s star-studded benefit show for the victims of the Haiti earthquake will be shown on MTV in the UK, the network has announced.

Featuring performances from Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys, the two-hour telethon will be screened live from 0100 GMT on Saturday, 23 January.

It will then be repeated at 0900 GMT on Saturday morning.

Funds raised will go to Oxfam America, Red Cross, Unicef, Partners in Health and the Yele Haiti Foundation.

Performances are also due from Bono, Sting and Christina Aguilera. Continue Reading…

It’s for a good cause but people only ever show up to benefit concerts to see their favourite artists perform live on stage. Rarely do they think or care about the cause, and the majority of artists who agree to take part do it because it’s good PR, or desperately need to kick-start a comeback ( yes I’m talking about you Christina Aguilera).

Anyway so far we have Bono (A must have!), Justin Timberlake, Christina and Alicia Keys on the bill. Do they also plan on inviting artists from all over the Caribbean to perform too???

…..And I don’t just mean Rihanna, The Marley family and Sean Paul. 

Enquiring minds would like to know….

    The Hatian people need all the help they can get from wherever they can get it.
