But many Haitians have marched through the streets in protest over Jean's disqualification. Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital. [August 21, 2010]

Wyclef Jean: "Rivers of Babylon" After a night of stirring performances, it was only right that Wyclef Jean closed out "Hope for Haiti Now." The Haitian-born star — who immediately traveled to his homeland in the aftermath of the earthquake and has raised millions of dollars for relief efforts — delivered a moving rendition of the reggae classic "Rivers of Babylon." The biblically inspired "Rivers" was written and performed by Brent Dowe and Trevor mcnaughton of the Jamaican trio the Melodians in 1972, and it was included on the soundtrack to the classic Jamaican crime film "The Harder They Come." Its lyrics are based largely on Psalm 137, which details the Jewish people's despair after being exiled from Jerusalem by the Babylonians. A 1978 cover version of "Rivers of Babylon" by the disco group Boney M hit #1 in the United Kingdom and stayed there for five weeks; it peaked on the US pop charts at #30. Sublime's 1992 debut 40 Oz. to Freedom featured a live version of the track, which has also been covered by Paul Simon and Sinead O'Connor. "Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in thy sight here tonight," 'Clef sang. That meditation, taken from Psalm 19, seemed like a fitting epigram for a night filled with appeals for awareness and assistance.Stars flock to telethon to raise money for Haiti quake victims.
