Looking for a great way to contribute some money to help all the people in Japan ? A new album called "Songs For Japan" was released yesterday with music from many different artists with all the proceeds going to help aid in Japan. Read on for the details and song list.
Songs for Japan is a charity compilation album created to benefit relief efforts for the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. A collaborative project between the music industry's "big four" record labelsEMI, Sony, Universal, and Warner), the album was released through the iTunes Store on March 25, 2011 through Universal.Royalties for the songs featured on the album were waived so that all proceeds may be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society.
Although Songs for Japan received praise for its charitable purpose it was criticized for being a compilation of already released songs, with the exception of Lady Gaga's remixed "Born This Way". This is unlike past charity albums such as Hope for Haiti Now that have included original music and performances.
