Posted in Philanthropy at 6:21 pm by philanthropynews

Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Bob Dylan are among the artists featured on the “Songs for Japan” compilation released on Friday through iTunes.

Proceeds for the $9.99 release will benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) and go towards earthquake and tsunami relief.

The 38-track compilation also includes songs from U2, John Lennon, Bruno Mars, Katy Perrt, Rihanna, Madonna, Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady Antebellum, Elton John, Queen and John Mayer. Purchasing the songs individually would cost about $38, so it’s a bargain and charity.
