Our Haiti Relief Song is Better Than Yours

musicAmerican musicians re-recorded We Are The World to raise money for Haiti and now we have a Canadian response. The collective is called Young Artists for Haiti and they've recorded K'naan's Wavin' Flag.

Here are the soloists:

  • K'naan
  • Nelly Furtado
  • Sam Roberts
  • Avril Lavigne
  • Pierre Bouvier
  • Tyler Connolly
  • Kardinal Offishall
  • Jully Black
  • Deryck Whibley
  • Serena Ryder
  • Jacob Hoggard
  • Emily Haines
  • Hawksley Workman
  • Drake
  • Chin Injeti
  • Ima
  • Pierre Lapointe
  • Elisapie Isaac
  • Esthero
  • Corb Lund
  • Fefe Dobson
  • Nikki Yanofsky
  • Matt Mays
  • Justin Nozuka
  • Justin Bieber

In the chorus my eagle eye caught old friends Jim Cuddy, Tom Cochrane, Colin James and Jim Creeggan.

I like it. It's a good tune. Doesn't beat the American song though.
