Supergroups are the fashion at the moment, and now it is reggae’s turn – a trio of reggae superstars have joined forces for charity.
“Rise Again is for the people of Haiti,” said Shaggy. “It is to show them that we are here for them, and that we will support them each step of the way as they begin rebuilding their lives, which were shattered by the earthquake. I am very proud of this song and the collaboration with Digicel.”
The track is available for download from iTunes, with all proceeds going to the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund.
“Rise Again succeeds in being both moving and uplifting and we are delighted with the reception that it has had across the globe to date,” said Group CEO of Digicel, Colm Delve. “We would like to thank everyone for their support and encourage people to log on to iTunes and purchase the song so that we can keep giving to the people of Haiti in their time of need.”
Joining the trio on the recording are Alison Hinds, Shontelle Layne, Edwin Yearwood, Destra Garcia, David Rudder Kes Dieffenthaller, Tessanne Chin and Etana and Haitian artiste, Belo.
The Digicel Haiti Relief Fund has donated US$5 million to NGOs in Haiti to support the relief efforts and over US$600,000 has been raised by Digicel customers across the Caribbean and Central America through a text and voice donation line.
