(Best Syndication News) - Born in Haiti, Hip-Hop artist, Wyclef Jean, 37, is planning on announcing his candidacy for the President of Haiti which is up for election this November.

Jean moved to Brooklyn, New York when he was 9 year old and then moved again to New Jersey. He is married and the couple adopted a daughter in 2005.

Jean tells People Magazine that he is running because of the corruption that Haiti has experienced for the last two hundred years. He also decided to run for president after the devastating earthquake that happened on January 12th this year.

Jean said that he was a UN Goodwill ambassador for a couple of years and he has a charity set up in 2005, called the Yéle Haiti Foundation.
