Just a few days after Typhoon Haiyan made landfall and wreaked extreme devastation in the Philippines, Apple began accepting monetary contributions to the American Red Cross’ relief efforts via a special donation page on iTunes. Now, the company has gone one step further in aid of Typhoon Haiyan relief by releasing a benefit compilation album called Songs for the Philippines.
Exclusively available on iTunes, Songs for the Philippines is one of the global music community’s ways of helping raise funds for the relief efforts for people who are most affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
As the people of the Philippines recover and rebuild in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation, some of music’s biggest names are brought together on this benefit album. Including songs from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Beyonc, Adele, U2, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Lorde, and Imagine Dragons, this brilliant collection is united by a message of hope and compassion.
Also featuring several artists of Filipino descent (Bruno Mars, Enrique Iglesias, apl.de.ap, and Jessica Sanchez), Songs for the Philippines will benefit the Philippine Red Cross, to which all proceeds of the album will be donated.
