It's official: Musical artist and erstwhile Fugee Wyclef Jean is, in fact, running for president of Haiti.

It's nice to see some of the same people involved in making the first video in the remake, but this version is populated by mostly new faces including Jennifer Hudson, Josh Groban, Wyclef Jean, and Kanye West, among many others.

The new version is about a full minute longer than the original, and the real question is, how does it stack up?

According to Jean, the Haitian people's indomitable spirit remains despite the devastating 7.0 earthquake and current death toll of 70,000 people. "I remember every night, me and my wife, that the people were singing," he said.
