Altos De Chavon, Dominican Republic -- Haiti's president performed a duet late Friday with Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias in a celebrity-studded concert in the Dominican Republic to help raise money for impoverished children.
Haitian President Michel Martelly, better known by his stage name of "Sweet Micky," thanked Iglesias for dedicating a concert of his "1 World Tour 2012" to Haiti's children. The proceeds will go to the Pink and White Foundation, a charity run by Martelly and his wife, Sophia.
The duet represented Martelly's first performance outside Haiti since he was elected in May 2011. He was previously known for often bawdy performances before becoming president.
"I've been a singer my whole life, but I never thought I'd be here next to you, singing," Martelly told Iglesias.
