Santo Domingo.- Haiti's singer-turned-president is returning to the international stage.
President Michel Martelly will sing two songs with Spanish singer Julio Iglesias at a benefit concert tonight at the Altos de Chavón amphitheater. Martelly has made several impromptu performances in Haiti since he was elected in May 2011. But the show in Casa de Campo will be his first performance outside Haiti for the artist known as "Sweet Micky."
Concert organizer George Nader says proceeds will go to the Pink and White Foundation, a charity for poor children in Haiti run by Martelly and his wife, Sophia.
Henry Kissinger and designers Donna Karan and Oscar de la Renta are among the celebrities expected to attend.
Martelly was known for often bawdy performances before he was elected president of a country struggling to recover from a January 2010 earthquake.
