Mexico City may be located over 1,500 miles away from Port-au-Prince, but that hasn’t stopped many of our favorite Mexican musicians from wanting to do something for Haiti’s earthquake victims. Aleks Syntek, Alejandro Fernández, Vicente Fernández, Julieta Venegas, Natalia Lafourcade, Alejandra Guzmán, Zoe and Panteón Rococo are just some of the artists and groups lending their voices to a special album titled Voces por Haití.
“It’s a compilation of familiar songs, which gives us the opportunity to act fast,” wrote Aleks Syntek on his Twitter page. All of the money raised will go directly to Haiti. But as good a deed as this album may be, it has stirred up a bit of controversy in Mexico, which some say has enough problems of its own. Yet despite the negativity, the double-disc will hit stores this week thanks to the angels that helped put it together. Keep a lookout to do your part.
