Today is a special day as we announce the creation of Rise Up For Haiti – a benefit concert to commemorate the 7th Anniversary of the Earthquake that ravaged Haiti on January 12, 2010.
This is not only a special and solemn day but a day where people are coming together to sing God’s praises. Internationally acclaimed, Gospel extraordinaire Kirk Franklin will be in Haiti on January 12, 2017 to make the anniversary more of a celebration of life, than a day of devastation. From 5pm to 10pm on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at Centre Sportif Henfrasa, Rise Up for Haiti, will feature artists like Spirit of Praise from Atlanta, Sunday’s Best Will and Alexis, and Haitian gospel sensations Maggie Blanchard, Gospel Kreyol and Revelation Mizik, among others.
Attached please find the official press release announcing the concert, the flyer, as well as the advertisement. We are excited to be headed to Haiti to make this concert a reality and we do hope that you share this with your followers, viewers, listeners and the general public.
Interviews are available and we are looking forward to hearing from the Media to make Rise Up For Haiti a success. Call or email me directly for more information on how you can make this event bigger and better and how together we can Rise Up For Haiti!

Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Blessing to Haiti
“Rise Up for Haiti”
Port-au-Prince, Haiti – November 7, 2016 – On January 12, 2017, the 7th anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, the Giving Hearts with Love Foundation and Superior Seven Group have lined up a monumental event at Centre Sportif Henfrasa in
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, that will help memorialize that day in Haiti’s history, while also sharing the hope of rising up that has continued to build the Haitian spirit throughout the years.
“Rise Up for Haiti will showcase the resilience of the Haitian people, while sharing the love of Jesus Christ, and giving Haitians the peace, unity, love and hope they need to be reminded that they have not been forgotten, even now in the wake of Hurricane Matthew,” says Terrell Reid from Giving Hearts with Love Foundation.
As a South Florida based non-profit 501©(3) organization, the Giving Hearts with Love Foundation has been committed to enhancing growth in underprivileged communities including in Haiti. Since its founding, the Giving Hearts with Love Foundation has been active in Haiti distributing aid and provisions to those in need and has a long-term goal to build schools that will provide Haitian children the quality education they deserve.
In January 2010, following Haiti’s earthquake, Grammy Award winning gospel artist, Kirk Franklin proudly led a movement called “Artists United for Haiti,” where performers like Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Natalie Grant, Fred Hammond, Tamela Mann, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin, Smokie Norful, Marvin Sapp, BeBe Winans, Cece Winans, and Marvin Winans shared their talents to raise funds for earthquake relief and today his passion for Haiti continues.
From 5pm to 10pm on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at Centre Sportif Henfrasa, Rise Up for Haiti, will feature artists like Spirit of Praise from Atlanta, Sunday’s Best Will and Alexis, and Haitian gospel sensations Maggie Blanchard, Gospel Kreyol and Revelation Mizik, among others.
Through strength and perseverance, Haiti has continued to forge ahead, even in the midst of hardship, that is why a gospel concert of this caliber will provide a platform for people from all over the world to join Haiti as they commemorate this significant anniversary.
Music uplifts and sheds light in the midst of darkness, and the Giving Hearts with Love Foundation, alongside the Superior Seven Group are excited to share something different with Haiti, while making this important memorial something to rejoice about because in the end Haiti is still standing and will continue to Rise Up!
