We Are The World 25th Anniversary (Official Video)
Updated: January 20th
Mike Shinoda has spearheaded a benefit for Haiti, allowing fans to download previously unreleased tracks from the likes of Alanis Morissette, The All-American Rejects, Dave Matthews Band, Enrique Iglesias, Hoobastank, Kenna, Linkin Park, Lupe Fiasco, Peter Gabriel and Slash. The compilation, “Download To Donate For Haiti,” is free and available for download at the website for Music for Relief, the nonprofit started by Los Angeles’ Linkin Park in 2005. Music for Relief reports that it has raised more than $3 million for disaster relief in its five years of existence.
Mike Shinoda Explained: “It was an idea as of Thursday – We ask that you donate, but you don’t have to — if all you can afford is to spread the word, embed the widget, share it on Facebook, Twitter, whatever, then that will be good enough, – We’re hoping to raise a lot of money for a lot of people who need it in Haiti. We started our organization, Music For Relief, back in 2005 after the Tsunami in South Asia,. Music for Relief’s goal is to provide relief, funds and awareness in the wake of natural disasters … this is the first time that the technology has been available to do something like this; just a few years ago, it wouldn’t be possible for artists to turn around songs so quickly, in a matter of days. By the way, I should say that Music for Relief [donates] 100 percent of the funds, We’re just a conduit; everybody’s working for free and everybody’s working hard.” According to the relief site, Chad Hugo Co-Produced Kenna’s ‘Never Let Me Down’ tune together with Mike Shinoda, a leftover off Kenna’s 2007 Make Sure They See My Face.
