Awards Alert: Welcome, Wyclef Jean!

by Harold Goldberg

The New York Videogame Critics Circle is thrilled to announce that 10-time Grammy nominated and three-time Grammy award-winning producer, performer, songwriter and activist Wyclef Jean will premiere new music he composed for the game “Lost In Harmony” at the New York Game Awards on February 9.

A powerful pop cultural force for over two decades, Wyclef Jean has written, performed and produced music as both a solo superstar and as founder and guiding member of the Fugees, selling over 72  million albums in the process. Check out “Kiss The Sky,” his recent collaboration with The Knocks which proves that Wyclef is as vital to music as he has ever been. It’s a fine mix of infectious beats and melodic synths that will keep you in a hip hop state of mind all day long.  And Wyclef has a new CD that will drop later in 2016.

Wyclef’s work on “Lost in Harmony” seems like a perfect match of musician with gamemaker. This touching creation was brought to life by the co-creator of the story-rich “Valiant Hearts.”

We have an extremely limited amount of tickets for the New York Game Awards. Here’s the scoop on tickets. 

Harold Goldberg, the Circle’s founder, has written for The New York Times and is the author of All Your Base Are Belong to Us (How 50 Years of Videogames Conquered Pop Culture)
