Taylor Swift, Keith Urban Join Haiti Telethon Lineup
Stars are lining up for George Clooney's worldwide "Hope For Haiti" telethon, including Country superstars Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, AOL's The Boot reported. Both guitar-slingers will perform during the telethon, which will be broadcast on all the major networks Friday night at 8 p.m. EST. Swift will also lend her talents to the phone lines, answering pledge donation calls.
"I've never actually worked a phone bank before," Swift told Nashville's The Tennessean. "But I want to do everything I can to help out this horrible situation. I'm passionate about this. This one was an immediate yes."
Other performers scheduled to appear include Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Sting, John Legend, Bono, Justin Timberlake and Haitin native Wyclef Jean. Sharing hosting duties are Clooney, Wyclef and CNN's Anderson Cooper. Donations will benefit several charities, including the Red Cross, UNICEF, and Wyclelf's Yele Haiti Foundation.
