If you don't know already, Steel Pulse
are THE best reggae band on the planet. They also care. In a bid to help those affected by the massive earthquake that killed around a quarter of a million people six months ago, they have penned a new song Hold On [4 Haiti]
. "At the time of the earthquake, Steel Pulse were in Jamaica, working on our new album," says lead singer David Hinds. "We felt the tremor. Two days later, we put down the track. Our challenge was to find a way to get the song out to the public in a manner that would help the people of Haiti in a meaningful way. It took us a while to find the right organisation to donate the song to - one that makes a difference on the ground. We were impressed with SELF and their Solar Health Care Partnership with PIH. We can't get weary, you know," says Hinds. "Haiti still needs our support for the long term, and we know that SELF and PIH will be there every day and night."
