Yes, it came out a bit late, but here are the Young (Canadian) Artists for Haiti performing their song for Haiti: Wavin' Flag. The song was recorded last month in Vancouver.
Great to see young artists getting into the awareness and hope business for their generation - hopefully they have also donated a lot of money as well. (Proceeds go to War Child Canada, Free The Children, and World Vision.)
I recognized Drake (my kids would be so impressed), Avril Lavigne, Nikki Yanofsky, Justin Bieber, Nelly Furtado and Sam Roberts. That's about it. How many can you identify?
