PMI to sponsor Wyclef concert in CT this summer

Wikimedia Commons Wyclef Jean is set to perform in Stamford this summer.

Philip Morris International, which moved its headquarters from Manhattan to Stamford in 2022, is sponsoring a charity concert that will feature Haitian rapper, singer and record producer Wyclef Jean.

The concert, set for Aug. 8 as part of Stamford’s Alive At Five summer concert series, will benefit Bridgeport-based nonprofit Career Resources Inc., a workforce development service.

Wyclef, a three-time Grammy Award winner, formed the hip-hop group Fugees with frontwoman Lauryn Hill and Pras in 1990. He is a long-time collaborator of PMI.

PMI will make a donation directly to Career Resources, and is also covering the artist fees for Wyclef’s performance.

A text-to-donate campaign during the concert will allow audience members to donate to the organization as well.

PMI recently made a $5 million commitment over five years to the Women’s Business Development Council, which helps women pursue entrepreneurship.
