Sean Penn: Reportedly planning for Haiti benefit concert in 2013
Oscar-winning star Sean Penn is reportedly organizing a benefit concert for the people of Haiti.
The artist is seeking to hold the show in January in commemoration of the 2010 earthquake which damaged much of Haiti's infrastructure, reports New York Daily News.
Apparently, Penn is hard at work to secure major acts for the show, and has already signed up both Sir Paul McCartney and Bono, according to a source close to the star.
"He's in serious talks with Rihanna, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, as well as Eminem and 50 Cent. Sean wants this to be huge and raise a lot of money, with sponsors he is working really hard to get," the informant claimed.
The actor's benefit show is expected to be held at National Palace in Port au Prince, which will reportedly be torn down next year.
The generated money for the show will go to Penn's J/P Haitian Relief charity.
However, a rep for Penn has offered no official comment on the proposed concert.
The 'Milk' actor has been an outspoken advocate for the Haitian people since they suffered 2010's devastating quake.
