Tova H : Dear Tiny Desk organizers, thank you so much for the endless incredible musicians, just like Wyclef. You have brought inspiration, empathy, love, joy, celebration, mourning and sadness into my life by introducing me to the most insanely creative and colourful artists on this channel. I look forward to the rest of what you're bringing forwards, appreciate your incredible sense of good taste and thank you once more for giving me meaning and relief in this crazy life of mine. Love you, T.

Christopher Ewing : TALENT, that's it.

Joe Khanh : Ay yo, this is fucking Amazing

Brandon Belcher : Jazzy sounds good & she’s beautiful 🔥 she has a Ms. Hill vibe.

Ilio Gonzalez : This is the most impressed I have ever been out of a tiny desk, and that is saying something because Tiny Desk Series is amazing.  He played 3 different instruments, rapped and sang in 3 different languages, and kept the crowd engaged the WHOLE time with his stories/jokes.  Such a performer... I am in awe.

Ivan Santos : Get Sia. It would be golden.

Patrick Foley : I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wyclef. The Carnival came out when I was 12 - vibed from day 1. Stay strong Wyclef - keep the great music coming brother!

Bryson Mukuya : Chance sounds like Wyclef i see it now

Paris Love : Okay.... so can we just talk about Young Jazzy for a second?? I got goosebumps from the time she opened her mouth. Do the damn thing girl!

dewdewdewdewdful : Tiny Desk definitely deserves the best music channel. But I also don't want the whole world to see/listen, because I want to keep it to myself, so selfish. It just feels good after I come home late night after work. Perfect selection of musicians to set the mood too. Thank you. So much respect for keeping music alive. spelling

Night Wolf : Holy shit voice! I gotta search her music up. She's giving me 90s vibe

J : This is great! I’m also gonna keep requesting Hiatus Kaiyote until I see them. 👀

Justin : That first track... my goodness...

Maurice Slater : wyclef is the TRUTH!!! i love his energy and he is so talented. Don't get me wrong the Fugess is so important to this hip hop music but Wyclef is defiantly underrated. The carnival is way before our time and still one of my top 10 albums of all time...one of my favorite desks visit..

Like Hell : This is an amazing display of sound and talent. I also really dig the Maryland flag guitar strap! haha

Eric Thivierge : This guy is still on top of his game after all these years. An amazing artist!

Cameron Aitcheson-Labarr : Yo Y'all need to get Tom Misch on here!!!

jacobtworks : Remember when this guy ran off with all the money people donated to help haiti?

Robert Riden Jr : People put too much into it. Simply, enjoy and not judge.

Lincoln Dunn : great musician, great story teller. LEGEND!!!

ryan chatterjee : First

Jessie Farmer : New Wyclef was talented, but damn.

kevinoneal : A very beautiful performance! What a great musician

E77381 : If he hadn’t sang, rapped, played 2 instruments, spoke in 3 languages, and played guitar solos with his teeth and behind his head...we can only imagine how much more uncomfortable the polite applause would have been. His true calling might have been circus performing. Is he a mediocre juggler, too? And was he really singing a sexy duet with his talentless niece?

rickjames21 : Wow... Clef is a legend

The Starters Club : Starting a petition for a Fugees Reunion Tour - Who's with me?!

Funkaholic : 1:50 sounds like Chance the Rapper or should I say Chance sounds alot like Wyclef Jean :D

Shupeng Wen : God damn, that backup singer tho.
