Justin Bieber, Rihanna to Be Featured on Japan Aid Album
By Boombox Editors Posted Mar 22nd 2011 11:50PM
Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, U2 and Bon Jovi are all expected to appear on the album, waiving their royalties so that the entire proceeds will go towards Red Cross Japan.
"We are doing it only digitally because it is faster, and this will be a worldwide release. The plan is to have it available later this week," a spokesperson for Universal explained. The as-yet-unfinished compilation will likely feature several other artists from the label.
Gaga lost no time in joining the relief effort, tweeting that she had designed a special prayer bracelet on Friday, March 11, just hours after the earthquake shook Japan. In two days, Gaga and her loyal fans had raised over $250,000.
Singer Ne-Yo is also contributing to the country's aid by performing at several charity concerts in Japan , one of which took place Yesterday, and another on Thursday, March 24.
