There will be an all-star cast of musicians performing for the "Hope for Haiti" telethon, including Wyclef Jean, Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Shakira, and Sting in New York, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Dave Matthews, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift and a group performance by Keith Urban, Kid Rock, and Sheryl Crow in L.A., and Coldplay, and a group performance by Bono, The Edge, Jay-Z, and Rihanna in London.

George Clooney will anchor the concert from Los Angeles, with Haitian singer  Wyclef Jean anchoring in New York. CNN’s Anderson Cooper will deliver reports from Haiti.

The telethon  will be telecast Friday, Jan. 22 starting at 8 p.m., ET, and it will be almost impossible to miss the show on the TV dial. All the major broadcast networks are on-board, as are the MTV networks, and a slew of other cable nets. 

In a move sure to please millions of viewers, the musician’s performances  will also be made available at the Apple iTunes store beginning Saturday, Jan. 23 for $.99 per song, with proceeds benefiting Haiti relief.
