The pop music community has started to mobilize in the wake of the tragedy of Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami. It was reported here earlier that Simon Cowell was planning a charity single. That has been pulled for lack of confirmation and suspicion of being an online hoax.
Elsewhere, major pop stars have been busy in the efforts to aid Japan. Lady Gaga is selling a Japan prayer bracelet with all proceeds going to earthquake relief efforts. A wide range of stars are encouraging donations to the Red Cross through their Twitter sites. Music For Relief is mobilizing and already has a tsunami relief t-shirt designed by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park available to encourage donations. Download to Donate makes new music available for free download with the receipt of contributions to aid Japan relief. Watch for more news as the music community once again mobilizes in the face of tragedy.
