Pop heart throb Justin Timberlake’s reverent take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” seemed perfectly suited for the benefit to raise money for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
The singer told MTV that the song is one of his favorites. “What’s being said in the song, it just kind of fit the telethon,” he said.
Christina Aguilera leant her powerful pipes to the stirring ballad “Lift Me Up.” Accompanied by the song’s composer, producer Linda Perry, Aguilera’s heartfelt performance soared over the sound stage. The song is reportedly a new single from her upcoming album.
Hip hop was also well represented at the telethon. Superstars Jay-Z, Bono and Rihanna came together in London for a spirited performance of “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour).” The song is an original track composed for the benefit.
Seemed to me that Bono's microphone was off. At least I got to look at Rihanna a lot.
Watched just to see Keith Urban, but they didn't seem to harmonize well to me.
The show could have had a few more 'uplifting' songs. Pretty depressing to me.
I tried to watch this show and about an half hour in to it i trun the channel i kept flipping back hoping that it was going to get better..but it didn't we have donated to the salvation army and other fundraisers for this tragic event...we have also been on several mission trips around the country..but this just was a bad show sorry ... But way to step up to the plate and do something..
How muchmoney was total for donations
Robert egos checked at the door? Of course all the stars have egos....otherwise why would they belive they could raise the money with their performaces. I believe Debra R meant overblown egos were in check from the entertainers. The ITUNE download Hope for Haiti is wonderful and only 7.99 for 20 songs.
I wasn't going to watch it but ended up watching the entire thing. Very nice, with wonderful song selections by the artists. Very heartfelt.
Didn't catch the show, but if only three performances make your ""Highlights", it musta been pretty damn crappy.
seriously? egos checked at the door?
The concert was very well done and quite moving! I will be downloading it to support Haiti! Blessings
The highlight of the night for me was the trio of Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow and Keith Urban....but the entire show was very well done and understated...it is clear that egos were checked at the door.
