Will Wyclef Jean be Haiti’s next president? Looks to us like it could potentially happen!

CNN is reporting that Jean will announce his candidacy tomorrow night on Larry King Live.

The Haitan-American musician has been an outspoken advocate for his home country and even founded the Yele Foundation — an organization that is responsible for “over 3,000 new jobs, close to 7,000 children being put in school, more than 8,000 people a month receiving food and approximately 2,000 young people a month learning about HIV/AIDS prevention.”

“I’ve always promoted Haiti in my music, since my first album with the Fugees where we talked about what Haitians are going through and about human rights for people around the world,” Jean said. “This is how we came in the game, we never thought we were going to be music stars because the topics we talked about were not very popular in mainstream music.”

Jean announced late last month that he had filled out the necessary paperwork to run for office, and plans to finalize the deal with tomorrow’s announcement.
