For Barbadian singer Rihanna, the natural disaster that has devastated Haiti has hit close to home. She's teaming up with Oprah to make a difference for the Haitian people, dismantled by the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that hit the island nation last week. Rihanna appeared on Oprah yesterday singing her own version of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" and is making that performance available for purchase on iTunes with proceeds from the track going toward the Haitian relief effort through the Red Cross, UNICEF, Oxfam America and Partners In Health. To buy the song, log on Rihannanow.com or Oprah.com. It's great to see that Rihanna is doing her part to help her fellow Caribbeans in this time of crisis. View the video now.

Singer of Haitian decent Maxwell made a statement about how he and former US President Bill Clinton are helping Haiti and how you can too. Last week, actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon spoke out about the tradegy that struck her homeland.
