In response to the devastating earthquake that rocked the island nation of Haiti last week, a diverse group of musicians has come together to donate unreleased tracks to raise funds for the victims of the quake. The artists involved include Alanis Morissette, The All-American Rejects, Dave Matthews Band, Enrique Iglesias, Hoobastank, Kenna, Linkin Park, Lupe Fiasco, Peter Gabriel and Slash. The effort is organized by Music For Relief, a nonprofit founded by the members of rock group Linkin Park, that is dedicated to raising funds for disaster relief efforts around the world.
Since it was founded, just five years ago, Music For Relief has raised over three million dollars to support relief efforts following the 2004 tsunamis in Southeast Asia, Hurricane Katrina in the U.S. and other natural disasters. Now, they are turning their attention to the millions of lives affected by the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti and rallying together fellow musicians to join them.
To hear more from the artists about the "download to donate" effort and why the crisis in Haiti is close to their hearts, tune in to Larry King Live January 19 6:00 p.m. PST/9:00 p.m. EST.
