Song to Help Fix Japan

To benefit the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami that shook—and took—the lives of so many in March 2011, 49 artists from 18 countries including Simple Plan's Pierre Bouvier and Sebastien Lefevbre, Evaline, These Kids Wear Crowns and (amazing) 11 year old Yuto Miyazawa came together in Singapore to record a cover of Coldplay's "Fix You." Sweet Jane's Lydia des Dolles flew the flag for Ireland. Beautiful we-are-the-world stuff.



The proceeds of this track (to be released soon on iTunes) will benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society and Peace Boat—a Tokyo based charity helping with the country's rebuilding and rehabilitation efforts.
