I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’ve seen the earth shake right under her feet
She told me 'baby don’t weep'
I’m sitting on Oprah, tears in my eyes
I knew your story ever since a kid
Developed a crush when I heard what you did
1804 you made my people free
You the reason I feel I can be anything
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
They tried to make you turn on me for real
Said I stole everything that we built
You told me don’t bother, the truth's in my eyes
From the bottom of the buck and straight to the top
Every time you around I can feel the clock stop
Despite what they think, we got a chance
Cause we got one last dance
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt
Sakapfèt chéri Ayiti map mandew
Sakapfèt
Leuw ou tombé gade jan ou lévé
Leuw ou lévé gadé jan ou
Pran fòs é leuw ou pran fòs pagen
Mounn kap kenbew Ou gen pouw
Dérapé avèk atakénn nou Pa Janm panike
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
I'm in love with Lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Lady
Miss Haiti




Songwriter's Corner: Roody Laforest

"Cheri, mwen konnen m pa ase." That's what Roody Laforest sings on his debut single, Mwen Pa Ase. It takes an honest man to admit his shortcomings. But after chatting with the Montreal-based singer, we realized though Roody tells it like it is, he can be a little too hard on himself. Wikimizik talked to him about his musical roots and writing process. We hope you enjoy his straight talk as much as...

For Mom

Five Diaspora Winter Anthems

A few weeks ago, all 50 states reached freezing temperatures. The Polar vortex may be gone, but most of us still can't feel our toes. Since humans can't hibernate, staying in and hunkering down is only a temporary fix. Plus, we have to brave the cold to pay those bills. Good thing, we have music to warm...
