What an unbelievable gesture! This band deserves all the accolades they've received this year!
Arcade Fire performed an intimate, surprise show for fans in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on Tuesday night, on top of raising over $1 million for post-earthquake relief for the devastated country!
Sources claim the band, whose singer, R√©gine Chassagne, is the daughter of Haitian immigrants, performed their own hits Keep the Car Running, Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains), and Haiti, as well as covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, and Cyndi Lauper tracks!
Truly amazing! We're sure this meant the WORLD to not only their fans down there, but the entire community!
You guys should be EXTREMELY proud of all of your efforts! We certainly are!
