Twilight star Robert Pattinson has signed on as a presenter for the Hope for Haiti concert to raise funds for the survivors of the 7.0 Haiti earthquake last week. Pattinson will join stars such as Taylor Swift, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Sandra Bullock and Shakira in lending a helping hand with the benefit concert.
The Hope for Haiti telethon, organized by Hollywood star George Clooney, will air live on nearly all major television networks on Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. central time. Networks airing the concert include ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN, HBO and MTV.
Haitian-born singer Wyclef Jean will co-host the show from New York, with George Clooney presenting from Los Angeles. CNN’s Anderson Cooper will broadcast live from Haiti during the event. Twilight star Robert Pattinson has signed on to present from London.
Even Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt will be tossing the gauntlet aside to help Haiti. Both have signed on as presenters for the Hope for Haiti concert, though we’re sure they probably won’t get within a mile of each other if at all possible.
Concert organizers are reportedly still trying to snag the rest of the Twilight trio – Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner – to boost young viewership. Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie are also reportedly on the wish list to participate in the show, according to E! Online.
