Wyclef Hits Oprah’s Couch, Rihanna Sings a “Redemption Song” For Haiti

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", News

Riri put on her stoic face to join relief efforts for Haiti by covering Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song,” live on The Oprah Winfrey Show today. Wyclef was also there to talk to Oprah about his experiences on the earthquake-shattered island. Look under the hood for her performance video and more details

We know some of y’all go “Hard” for Rihanna but let’s keep it real — she hit some bad notes. Bless her heart for trying to help though. Proceeds from the sale of this song on iTunes will go to “Hope for Haiti Now” earthquake relief. Maxwell’s single “Fistful of Tears” is also available for charitable purchase through iTunes, with proceeds going to “Hope for Haiti Now.” Both downloads are available for a limited time — with donations going directly to Haiti for the next 48 hours.

Wyclef got heated discussing how the food and relief is being thrown down from helicopters saying, “My people are not animals.”

The “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon will air on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT on Friday, January 22 at 8/7c commercial free. George Clooney will host live from Los Angeles, Wyclef Jean will host from New York, and CNN’s Anderson Cooper will broadcast from Haiti.

    rihanna ain’t hit no bad notes. She did a wonderful version of Redemption song. NO one is ever gonna do it like bob, but she held her own and delivered a solid performance. Good for her.

    she’s a pretty girl on the outside anyway. that photo of hers is nice. eyebrows, eyes her mouth looks weird . the top lip one side looks higher than the other. and as far as the song goes. she says when growing up even now she listen to redemption song when she faced difficult times. well she must listen to it everyday now being that she sold her soul and there’s no refund for that.

    did i mentioned her singing is horrible. bob must be turning in his grave . ewww

  • Who Gon Check Me BoO!

    Oh lawd I forget “Where is Rih Rih’s stylist that hair upon her head is just dreadful😦

  • HANNIBAL IS CRAVING ATTENTION WHICH MEANS IN REALITY HIS SOCIAL LIFE IS DEAD

    YES. The Internet has given so much life those who have other wised failed in real life. Wouldn’t surprise me if the regulars here are loosers in real life.

  • lala

    Sounds like a strangled cat. Stick to lip syncing. Her hair is cute, I, however like it better when its straight and styled, instead of curly like it is now. That’s just me though.😀

    I also give Wyclef the benefit of the doubt and texted my donation his foundation. I’d rather give it to his organization than to these other organizations. At least I’ve seen over the years where Wyclef’s heart is. On another note
    after hearing Rihanna sing Redemption Song, I had to pull out my Bob Marley and play it so I could hear it sung properly.

  • lala

    @Day, you been goin off n people these last days. Wats up man. U aint gettin ne at home lol. Just playing with ya, don’t bite my head off.

  • lala

  • Truth or Consequences

    @mychapstick Bob Marley’s body is probably spinning one way and his head is spinning the other way. Damn, that was some horrible singing.!

    LMAO!🙂

  • Dirty Diana...Let Me Be ♪

    Why was Rated R promoted at the end of the vid? This is not that time for that! very tacky

    she sounded good to me though

  • Tami

    Yes she did it for a good cause, her heart was in the right place but, please be honest Rihanna can’t sing, it’s not the first time she hit bad notes, she did it on America Music Awards and Good Morning America… So we really can’t count it as a bad day, she just can’t sing.If people would be truly honest Rihanna is riding nowadays on the incident! But… at the end of the day, people will say we are hating on her for telling the truth!!!!!

  • Vajra

    You guys are really disrespectful man. Karma is going to smack you all in the teeth for the comments you’re making. How can you focus so much on the negative when all of the charity is for a good cause…
