(GEMS RADIO)—Wyclef Jean is putting his all in to the reboot the Harlem Festival of Culture. He has been appointed to a leadership role in the organization as the Chair of the Music Advisory Board.

Wyclef will be in charge of recruiting local artists to the festival. “I am thrilled to join HFC as Chair of their Music Advisory Board,” Wyclef said. “On a personal note, Harlem has always held a special place in my heart as I have performed there very early in my career and throughout.”

“As a creative who is also an entrepreneur, I’m all about creating opportunities for creatives and professionals in our community and when I heard about this reimagining of what was such a seminal milestone in Black creativity and Black music, I knew I wanted to be involved in some way,” he concludes.

The festival will return in 2023 in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park.
