French superstar Yannick Noah, internationally acclaimed Haitian vocalist Emeline Michel, up-and-coming Haitian singer-songwriter BélO and French multi-instrumentalist and singer Mino Cinelu will share a NYC stage on March 15 for a unique benefit-concert for Haiti during the month of la Francophonie.
