Tonight, in only the latest show of support from the recording industry for the people of Haiti following the devastating 7.0 earthquake last month, BET presents its own fundraising effort: “SOS Saving Ourselves: Help for Haiti.”
The star-studded event, taking place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, is airing on MTV, BET, VH1 and Centric, but you can watch the entire thing streaming live right here.
Hosted by Diddy, Queen Latifah and Pharrell Williams, the event is set to feature performances by Drake, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Nas, Ludacris, Robin Thicke, Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson, Jazmine Sullivan, Busta Rhymes, India.Arie, Akon, Damian Marley and more. Wyclef Jean is set to deliver a special tribute to the Haitian people, while Pete Wentz, Gloria Estefan and Trey Songz are scheduled to participate. We’re also getting inside word that the show will feature a number of all-star collaborations throughout the night.
Money raised during concert will go to organizations providing immediate relief in Haiti, including Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti foundation, C.A.R.E. and Project MediShare. George Clooney and MTV Networks’ “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon was watched by 83 million people and helped raise more than $61 million. Tune in to “SOS Saving Ourselves: Help for Haiti” and continue to support relief effort in the struggling island nation.
