Wyclef To Share Presidential Experience

 


NEW YORK, NY - Haitian-born Grammy Award-winning singer, Wyclef Jean, is getting ready to share his Presidential election attempt with the world in song this December.

`If I Were President: My Haitian Experience,` is set to be released as a six song EP from Jean, on December 7th. It includes the new `Election Time,` song.

`This song is inspired by Pink Floyd`s `Another Brick In The Wall,` with the chant, `We don`t need no education,` says Wyclef Jean. `It is also inspired by Fela Kuti`s `Zombie.` It`s the voice of the youth. It is the voice of this generation. It`s the artist once again doing what the politicians should be doing. This is about inspiring the voice of this generation.`

The video for `Election Time,` was filmed in Haiti. Wyclef teamed up with Haitian director, Steve Halloun to co-direct the clip. Halloun, a former student of the University of Miami Film School, like Wyclef, is deeply concerned with helping Haiti on all fronts. The video created jobs for local residents, including the actors and technical staff, while showing the world unfamiliar pictures of his native country.

`I have to show all the sides of Haiti,` Wyclef Jean says. `There is still beauty in Haiti and I have to show the beauty and the ugly reality that is going to change. It will change.`

November 28th is the date for the general election in Haiti as the country gears up for Tomas and also as it battles a deadly Asian strain of cholera.
