Songs For Japan Earns $5 Million For Relief Efforts

Songs For Japan, the charity album to benefit Japan Earthquake efforts has raised more than $5 million since being released. The album features some of today’s biggest stars and has sold more than 500,000 albums since dropping last month.

The two-disc CD set and accompanying downloads were completed as a joint effort from some of the world’s largest record labels and includes hitmakers Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Madonna among many others.

Money from the collaboration is being handed over to the Japanese Red Cross Society and consists of 38 hit songs and classics that go all the way back to John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Elton John’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.”
