Canadian Artists Sing "Wavin' Flag" for Haiti

Since the devastation in Haiti, many charitable organizations have been enacted in order to help send money to the cause. Celebrities are always organized to get on board, and as I'm sure everyone has seen, Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" was revisited by today's biggest celebrities in order to raise awareness. K'naan, one of Canada's biggest hip-hop artists recently dropped his track "Wavin' Flag". Needless to say, it's been a smash hit, and it may even be used for the World Cup soccer tournament. The song is wildly inspirational, and as a result, young Canadian artists have banded together ala "Earth Song" to perform "Wavin' Flag" in order to raise money for Haiti. The video features tons of Canada's finest including K'naan, Avril Lavigne, Drake, Nikki Yanofsky, Sam Roberts, members of Broken Social Scene and Metric plus many more. Watch the video below and head to the Young Artists for Haiti Facebook page to donate and for more information. Thanks.
