*Queen Latifah, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Pharrell are set to host a nationally televised concert and celebrity telethon aimed at several organizations providing immediate relief in Haiti.
The program, dubbed “SOS Saving OurSelves – Help for Haiti,” will be aired on BET and Centric, as well as MTV Networks’ MTV and VH1 on Friday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami. It will also be streamed live on www.bet.com for desktop and mobile viewers.
“Words fail to describe the sadness we feel for our brothers and sisters in Haiti,” said Debra Lee, Chairman and CEO of BET Networks. “There is so much work to do, so we must keep the focus on Haiti and we must continue to give. This telethon will give everyone another opportunity to make a difference through the efforts of these amazing organizations that are working hard to rebuild Haiti.”
