Relief efforts in Japan have received a boost from some of the biggest names in music. “The Songs For Japan” compilation album has now raised $5 million for the Japanese Red Cross Society, based on the first month’s sales of the digital release and the physical two-CD set. The Japanese Red Cross Society last month received a payment of $2 million on behalf of the participating artists, songwriters, music labels, music publishers and iTunes – all of whom have waived their royalties and proceeds to ensure that the JRCS receives as much support as possible from this initiative. A further payment of $3 million was made to the JRCS on Monday. Artists on the compilation include Lady Antebellum, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, R.E.M., Elton John, John Lennon, and many more.
