be inspired

Some of Canada's most popular, talented & well known artists got together to re-record Canadian (Somalian born) rapper K'naan's song Wavin' Flag (which I spoke about here) for Haiti.

Artists you may recognize (& may or may not have known are Canadian): K'naan, Drake, Justin Bieber, Kardinal Offishall, Nelly Furtado, Fefe Dobson, Jay Malinowski (of Bedouin Soundclash), Esthero, Avril Lavigne, Nikki Yanofsky, Jully Black, Sam Roberts, The Canadian Tenors, and many many others (50 in total). Click any of the linked names to go to music videos you may recognize - so many talented Canadian artists - I wish I could share/introduce you to them with you all!

Everytime I hear it I get goosebumps. Don't get me wrong - I know other artists from other countries have come together to record songs for Haiti and I'm really happy about it all - I mean, it's for a good cause so every thing helps. But this just feels a bit different. It feels inspiring. And it was done kinda low key. No big media frenzy. So Canadian, eh?

I love it.

& you'll probably be hearing this song lots as it has also been re-recorded to act as the official song for the 2010 World Cup. You gotta listen to that version too. You'll want to get the flag from whatever country you're from and wave it around lol. Sweet.

Have a great weekend all!
