Worldwide superstar, Wyclef Jean, has sold over 100 million albums, and received three Grammy Awards®.

Haitian-born Wyclef Jean is a Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, producer, humanitarian, and Goodwill Ambassador to Haiti. A founding member of the groundbreaking hip-hop group Fugees and an iconic solo artist, Jean has crossed genres, generations, and geographic boundaries with his music.

Jean's talents as a producer and collaborator have led to a myriad of successful projects including a recording with Bono entitled "New Day"; writing and producing Carlos Santana's Supernatural, which won the Grammy for Album of the Year; Whitney Houston's "My Love Is Your Love"; and "Hips Don't Lie," which earned a Grammy nomination and became the #1 Top 40 airplay record of all time.

Stepping outside of the studio and beyond the microphone, Jean is a preeminent activist. In 2008, he participated in the Clinton Global Initiative where he spoke on panel discussions about his native Haiti. He is also the founder of Yéle Haiti, a grassroots movement that provides assistance to the country through community service programs, food distribution, and emergency relief. Meaning "a cry for freedom," the organization also inspires change through programs in education, sports, the arts, and the environment. Yéle Haiti has garnered international attention for its efforts, having been featured in USA Today and on CNN, Fox News, The Today Show, and 60 Minutes. After Haiti's devastating earthquake, all programs focused on the relief and reconstruction of the nation.

Wyclef Jean is the author of Purpose: An Immigrant's Story, an autobiography full of drama and humor that chronicles the incredible life of the most influential voices in hip-hop.
