Junior met Mikaben at EpiDor on Monday. Mikaben is a well-known Haitian musician. Junior is a talented musician as well. His guitar and keyboard were smashed during the earthquake. A Haitian pastor offered him to attend a music school in the Dominican Republic and that he could stay at his house while there. He needs to finish his tuberculosis treatment first though.
Mikaben wrote a song about Haiti after the earthquake. The opening verse of the song translated into english is:
"Father God, you see better than us.
We ask you to guide us in this situation.
It is a difficult moment.
We the Haitian artists,
We say that we will never leave the people.
We will always be here to give them courage,
To give them a bit of hope."
The closing verse of the song translated into english is:
"Please God, give us strength to stand in life
Please Father, give us strength to save this country
A bit of hope for Haiti"
