Were you as glued to the TV as we were last night during the two-hour Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief? Every big name star from Robert Pattinson to Alicia Keys came out to show their support, either though answering phones, speaking from the heart or performing live on stage. The telethon’s organizer, George Clooney, opened the night with an inspirational message: ”This is a tragedy that reaches across all borders, all boundaries and demands our attention, our help and our compassion as fellow human beings,” he said. “The Haitian people need our help. They need to know that they’re not alone. They need to know we still care.”
Here were some of our favorite moments from the telethon:
Jay-z, Rihanna, Bono and The Edge performed a brand new song, “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour),” which was written exclusively for the telethon.
