Wyclef Jean

 Wyclef Jeanelle Jean is a Haitian hip hop recording artist, musician, actor, and politician. At age nine, Jean moved to the USA with his family and has spent much of his life in the country. He first received fame as a member of the acclaimed New Jersey hip hop group the Fugees. Jean has won three Grammy Awards for his musical work.

On August 5, 2010, Jean filed for candidacy in the 2010 Haitian presidential election, although the Electoral Commission subsequently ruled him ineligible to stand as he had not met the requirement to have been resident in Haiti for five years.

Jean's efforts at earthquake relief, highly publicized in 2010 throughout Haiti and the United States, were channeled through his charitable organization, YĆ©le Haiti. The charity, which performed a variety of charitable works in Haiti between 2005 and 2010, effectively closed in 2012 after much controversy.

Wyclef Jean together with Carlos Santana, Avicii and Alexandre Pires have been chosen to perform the closing ceremony at the 2014 worldcup in Brazil. Their single Dar Um Jeito the official World Cup anthem was released April 29.
