Haiti Elects Musician "Sweet Micky" As President

In case you didn’t catch the news out of Haiti, 50-year old Haitian singer Michel Martelly has been officially elected as Haiti’s next president. Also known as “Sweet Micky” or Tet Kale, Martelly beat out out college professor and former first lady of Haiti, Mirlande Manigat. Read more on the outcome of the election here.

We’re not sure if it’s a great idea to elect a musician with no political background as president, especially after the country has suffered a major disaster. We’ll have to see how Martelly does. One thing we do know is that “Sweet Micky” won’t be touring anytime soon. Here he is in NYC last year at SOBs, keeping it rather tame.
