Arcade Fire announced to 45,000 fans that they will match donations made to the newly-founded organization KANPE  during a show played at the Quebec City Summer Festival this week.  Singer Win Butler said, “everyone who donates to KANPE, our band will match it up to $1 million,” adding, “Please take our money from us!”

Following the band’s pledge, they were joined on stage by members of the Haitian ensemble Ram for an amazing rendition of the song “Haiti”, from Arcade Fire’s 2004 debut, Funeral.  Ram came from Port-Au-Prince especially to play this show.
