Could Wyclef Jean be turning his back on the Democratic Party? It appears that way. The rapper turned songwriter and producer has been tapped to headline the Republic National Convention’s Got Your 6 event.
Wyclef Jean stepped up to perform at the event after country music singers Willie Nelson and Randy Travis each had to bow out of the performance. The event will take place in Tampa, Florida on August 29th. The event will be hosted by Meghan McCain and her mother, Cindy.

This announcement comes as a shock considering jean was a staunch supporter of the Obama Campaign in 2008. He even called himself an Obama groupie. So what would make an adamant Democrat, like Wyclef Jean, make a deal with the opposing team to perform at their event? Who knows, but jean has been relatively silent about who he is endorsing for this election. Furthermore, Wyclef Jean has come out and said he likes Sarah Palin.
People will probably never know why Wyclef Jean decided to appear at the Republican National Convention, but like Camira Powell wrote, “For Republicans, nothing screams diversity like a woman and black man –– an immigrant at that –– as the headliners of a major, televised event (the performance is cosponsored by Lifetime network).”
