and an acoustic performance

The multi-platinum musician, producer and actor talks candidly about his life as an immigrant and the inside story of the Fugees. The son of a pastor and grandson of a priest, Wyclef Jean was born and raised in the slums of Haiti. His family migrated to the US when he was nine, eventually settling in Newark, where his father converted a burnt down funeral parlor into a home and church.
In his memoir, Purpose, Wyclef reveals how music--rap in particular-- helped him to cope and adjust to life in a new country. How his passion became a wedge between him and his father. About his work in his native country after the devastating earthquake there, including his exploratory bid for president.
On his visit to Live Talks Los Angeles, this major voice in the music scene won't just talk--expect to be regaled with some new acoustic sounds.
