Wyclef Live From Jacmel Beach, Haiti, Free Concert

Here's our footage of Wyclef live from Haiti back in 2006 for a free concert to 50,000 on Jacmel Beach. The show was sponsored by his foundation, Yéle Haiti.

Wyclef admits that his Yéle Haiti organization has made mistakes in the past, but denies that he ever personally profited from them. He has been criticized for tax records that allegedly indicate malfeasance.

He ended a recent press conference with a plea to the world for help in procuring 100,000 tents to lead an exodus out of Port Au Prince so that demolition and logisitcs crews can get in and do their jobs.

He began the conference by describing how he carried dead bodies through the street, and was turned away from a morgue at capacity.
