Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Solemn music from the world’s biggest stars served as the soundtrack to Friday night’s telethon for Haiti relief, but the fundraiser ended with Wyclef Jean shouting “Enough of the moping, let’s rebuild Haiti.”

Organizers did not immediately say how much money was raised during the two-hour “Hope for Haiti” show, but donations will continue to flow in as the phone lines remained open and the night’s musical performances are sold on iTunes.

A moving performance by Alicia Keys opened the telethon. Actor George Clooney, serving as the Los Angeles host for the event, made the first appeal for donations to raise money for relief efforts after last week’s devastating earthquake.

“The Haitian people need our help,” Clooney said. “They need to know they are not alone. They need to know that we still care.”
