Music Celebs Raise Lots of Money in Fan Donations for Japan

In just 48 hours, Lady Gaga’s 8.8 million fans have raised a quarter of a million dollars for the Japanese relief effort. But Gaga isn’t the only one urging fans to donate. Like her “Japan Prayer Bracelets” that galvanized the donations, artists are getting creative for a cause. On Tuesday, Simon Cowell announced via Twitter that Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, and Katy Perry would be among those set to record a new song to benefit the Japanese victims. Other music celebs, such as Taylor Swift, Alanis Morissette and P-Diddy, joined Bieber, Spears and Perry on Twitter urging donations to the Red Cross and other efforts.

Music for Relief’s ‘Download to Donate‘, established during the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, is offering free downloads of new songs for a $10 (€7.10) donation, featuring recordings by Glitch Mob, Linkin Park, OK Go, and Caribou.
