Songs For Japan features Foo Fighters, U2, Springsteen & more

As the world continues to search for ways to help Japan through their current crisis, the music industry has pulled together to offer some assistance.

Universal Music spearheaded an industry-wide effort to create “Songs for Japan," a CD to support disaster relief efforts in the country, which was devastated March 11 by an earthquake and tsunami.

More than 30 recording artists have contributed to "Songs for Japan," a compilation of 38 hits and classic tracks available on the iTunes Store for $9.99.

You can order "Songs For Japan" from the link below.

Proceeds from the album's sale will benefit the disaster relief efforts of the Japanese Red Cross Society.

The artists participating on “Songs for Japan,” the music labels, and music publishers have waived their royalties and proceeds from the worldwide sales of the album to ensure that the JRCS receives as much support as possible from this global initiative.
