Young Artists for Haiti – Wavin’ Flag

Published March 25, 2010 - 0 Comments

It’s been 25 years since Bob Geldof put together a group of UK pop artists, BandAid, to record Do They Know It’s Christmas? and raise money for the starving people of Ethiopia.  Since then there have been several group collaborations for various worldwide causes.  After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, a group of young Canadian artists recorded a version of K’naan’s Wavin’ Flag.

I actually prefer the original version of the song, but there’s nothing wrong with this one.  It’s a great choice to inspire awareness, and hopefully action.  I’ve watched the video many times, and have tried to pick out some of the different artists.  Most of them are familiar (to me) faces.  There are definitely a few that I can’t place, but that doesn’t detract from the song at all.  And yes… even Justin Bieber’s solo piece at the very end works with this song.  And that pains me to admit.  It truly does.
