Haiti, song for you

The students of the High School for Recording Arts were moved by the tragedy in Haiti and wanted to help. They decided to apply their skills to raise awareness and to show their support for the people of Haiti.

Please donate to to show your support.

The High School for Recording Arts (HSRA), aka Hip Hop High, is an alternative high school in St. Paul, MN. HSRA provides youth the opportunity to achieve a high school diploma through the exploration and operation of the music business and other creative endeavors.

Note: Yéle Haiti is a foundation started by Grammy-Award winning musician, producer and social entrepreneur Wyclef Jean that is changing lives in this desperately poor but optimistic nation.

"Thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the recent disasters in Haiti. My family is among the many that have suffered loss. Ive been thinking of ways that I can be of optimal value to ongoing relief efforts. One of the things Ive decided to do is to dedicate my song, Souls, to the country. The song has been recognized with a John Lennon Songwriting Award in the recent past and it strikes an appropriate chord during these times of hardship. Let us all take advantage of this distinct opportunity to let our souls shine. Help however you can".
