*Elections in Haiti are this Sunday, March 20, and presidential candidate Michel Martelly – shown above in the photo with Jimmy Rosemond, Wyclef Jean, and Pras – is expected to win.
Rosemond, by the way, assisted in organizing a concert for the final rally that will lead up to the election.
The concert will feature Busta Rhymes and the Fugees (including Lauryn Hill) is being held today, March 17, at Champs de Mars, Haiti, with an expected 200 thousand in attendance.
Wyclef Jean stated:
“It’s a new era in Haiti and we are campaigning for change for good in my beloved country. I had to come home as a Diaspora to make a difference.”
Jimmy Rosemond chimed in:
“No change comes easy especially in these trying times for the Haitian population but I had to come to encourage voting for that change. As the Diaspora becomes more involved with Haiti there can’t be nothing but good change.”
Millions of Haitians are hoping that the election on Sunday will change their condition, lives and how the world perceives them.
