Though the Haitian earthquake has all but vanished from the mainstream media’s radar, local musicians continue to spotlight the need for sending relief to the country. Local hip-hop artist Young Haitti announced he’ll donate 50 percent of the proceeds from his fifth album, The Baydahaitian, to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. “After seeing the devastation over there and still waiting to find out if my own family members are alive, I knew I had to do something to contribute,” said the artist in a press release. The album is available in stores and on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby.com. Latin jazz singer Kat Parra will also donate $1 per CD sale of her recent album Dos Amantes to the Save the Children Fund, which helps kids in Haiti who were orphaned as a result of the earthquake.
