Rebirth of a Nation

I've tweeted this a few times before but I haven't fallen in love with a song so fast and so much in a long time, so I'm posting it for Good Friday/Easter. Strange especially since this is a Canadian All-Star remake of a current Canadian radio hit (and upcoming South African FIFA World Cup song) that I don't actually like that much. K'Naan's "Wavin' Flag" is still currently making its way up the Canadian charts but now he's lent it to Young Artists for Haiti and I'm LOVING this new version.

Okay, so it's Canadian stars so the rest of you probably won't know many of them, and heck, there's a bunch of folks I still haven't figured out who they are, but I see Nelly Furtado, Sam Roberts, Avril Lavigne, Simple Plan's Pierre Bouvier, Lights, Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Whibley, Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, Jully Black, Jacob Hoggard, Justin Nozuka, Fefe Dobson, Corb Lund, Drake, Nikki Yanofsky, and Justin Bieber.

I love the french dude. Pierre Lapointe.

I got this video too when it came out. I've got a couple of Pierre Lapointe's albums, too.
