Wyclef Jean will team with Buju Banton, Scarface
and Haitian group T-Vice to shoot a video in Miami, showing support for Haiti
and the entire Caribbean.
The video for "Next Generation" and
"Party By the Sea" will be shot in the Little Haiti section of Miami
and will produce a realistic depiction of Caribbean islanders.
"Through music, people are united despite
their cultures, views, race or creed. Music is responsible for creativity and
change. That is why this video is needed," Wyclef told AllHipHop.com in
Jean is using the video to urge members of the
Caribbean and abroad to show support for Haiti, which is embroiled in civil
strife, after country’s elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide was forced
to flee the country due to a rebel insurgency.
The video will be shot Monday April 5th and Tuesday
April 6th. During the shoot, Jean will hold a press conference to announce his
plans for a relief effort for Haiti.
