Featuring Hip-Hop Recording Artist and DC’s own Wale

WASHINGTON (Jan. 19, 2010) – Howard University students are joining hands to rebuild Haiti in the aftermath of last Tuesday’s devastating earthquake that claimed the lives of thousands. Left behind are scores of survivors who are in dire need of assistance. On Thursday, Jan. 21, students will host a Benefit Concert dubbed "Hands for Haiti," featuring recording artist Wale as the headliner in Cramton Auditorium.

Tickets will be priced at $10 for all students and $20 for the general public. They can be purchased from Cramton Auditorium or any Ticketmaster outlet. The proceeds from this concert will be donated to the University’s Haiti Relief fund. The event will include a performance from "Cimarrones," showcasing interpretive dances that have African and Caribbean influences. Spoken word artist Messiah, a three-time Apollo award winner, will also lend his voice to the cause.

The concert is sponsored by Howard University Student Association, the Office of Student Activities, Cramton Auditorium, Office of the Dean of the Chapel and the Office of the President.
