HOPE FOR HAITI NOW < Live Streaming

A GLOBAL BENEFIT FOR EARTHQUAKE RELIEF

Hope for Haiti Now via http://www.paramount.com The blog post on Hulu says it all:

When reports of the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti started pouring in, many of us — even celebrities — looked for ways to help. Two days after the earthquake, Up in the Air star George Clooney contacted MTV Networks, offering his help in putting together a star-studded benefit for the devastated nation. The result? Hope for Haiti Now, a two-hour telethon airing the evening of Friday, January 22 on most major networks. In addition, Hulu is proud to be hosting a live stream of the event starting at 8 p.m. EST (5 p.m. PST).

Hosted by Clooney, Wyclef Jean and Anderson Cooper, Hope for Haiti Now will feature performances by Jean himself, as well as Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Shakira, Sting, Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Dave Matthews, Justin Timberlake and much more — including a group performance by Jay-Z, Rihanna, and U2’s Bono and The Edge in London. Donations will benefit a variety of Haiti relief efforts, including the Red Cross, UNICEF, the Yele Haiti Foundation, Oxfam America and Partners in Health.

To find the live feed on Friday, visit the Hulu home page, where you’ll be able to find links to direct you to Hulu’s live feed player. Or come back here to the Hulu Blog, where we’ll have the player embedded for your convenience.

Well, maybe not all.  While the concert will be available for watching or streaming on your HDTV, you may also purchase music online and have the proceeds go towards a worthy cause.

All musical performances will be available for purchase for $.99 per song through the Apple® iTunes® Store beginning Saturday, January 23, with all proceeds benefiting Haiti relief funds managed by "Hope for Haiti Now" charities.

And now, the members of Linkin Park have assembled an all star line-up to help drum up money for the cause. The idea they had was simple: Release one new song from the band (an industrial-tinged ballad called "Not Alone") while also pulling together a collection unreleased material from artists such as The All-American Rejects, Slash, Alanis Morissette and the Dave Matthews Band.

Below is a clip of Rihanna’s performance on Oprah.  Help a worthy cause, enjoy the music, and happy viewing.

Now, in partnership with Oprah, Rihanna has made her performance of Bob Marley’s anthem “Redemption Song” – live from the stage of today’s Oprah show – available for charitable purchase through iTunes. Artist, label and publishing net proceeds from the track will directly benefit organizations spearheading the relief efforts in Haiti, including the Red Cross, UNICEF, Oxfam America and Partners In Health.
