MIAMI (AP) -- Sean "Diddy" Combs, Queen Latifah and Pharrell are set to host a two-hour concert and telethon to benefit earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

Wyclef Jean, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are among the performers who will take the stage Friday night at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. Other performers include Mary J. Blige, Drake, Justin Bieber, Keri Hilson, Robin Thicke and Monica.

The concert titled "SOS Saving OurSelves — Help for Haiti" will air live on BET, MTV, VH1 and Centric at 8 p.m. EST.

The fundraisers will benefit aid agencies including Yele Haiti, CARE, Project Medishare and Children's Safe Drinking Water.

More than 80 million people tuned in to the Jan. 22 all-star "Hope for Haiti Now" telethon, which organizers say raised $66 million.
