NEW SONG FROM LINKIN PARK TO BENEFIT HAITI RELIEF EFFORT

Some of the biggest names in music have joined forces for DOWNLOAD TO DONATE FOR HAITI, a star-studded recovery effort to aid the devastated nation of Haiti following the magnitude-7.0 earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince on January 12.

Working with Music For Relief, Linkin Park, Lupe Fiasco/Kenna (collaboration produced by Mike Shinoda), Alanis Morissette, The All-American Rejects, Dave Matthews Band, Enrique Iglesias, Hoobastank, Kenna (track co-produced by Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and The Neptunes’ Chad Hugo), Peter Gabriel and Slash have all graciously donated never-before-released music to help raise funds and promote awareness of the recovery efforts. Shepard Fairey’s Studio Number One created the project’s artwork.

"Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti,” said Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. “We pray that this initiative provides some relief and support to the survivors and hope we inspire our fans, friends and families to make donations as well.”

DOWNLOAD TO DONATE FOR HAITI provides fans with the opportunity to download a collection of exclusive songs by their favorite artists and then donate funds on a purely voluntary basis. Each download is a donation. Fans can download the unreleased songs at www.Musicforrelief.org and via the websites of each participating artist.

“We're encouraging people to give what they can,” says guitar legend Slash. “There’s no right or wrong amount. The people of Haiti are in desperate need of food, fresh water, shelter and medical supplies and every little bit helps.”

Mike Shinoda will appear on CNN’s “Larry King Live” on Tuesday, January 19 to discuss the project.

100% of funds received will go directly to the Haiti efforts. In partnership with the UN Foundation’s Central Emergency Response Fund, Habitat for Humanity, and Dave Matthews BAMA Works Haitian relief efforts, Music for Relief is working to support immediate relief with food, water and emergency medical supplies as well as long-term sustainable housing solutions for the people affected by this catastrophic natural disaster.

This is a magic moment in time, when technology, coupled with generosity, talent, and ingenuity has created a unique opportunity to do something positive through the power of music.

The Song is beautiful... I realized that it's actually dedicated to all the victims in Haiti who lost all they had (family, home etc.). It makes me kind of sad but I'm sure for the victim this song must kinda convey comfort... Anyway, I already donated before and I will donate again.
About the song: I just don't see why Mike didn't sing. It clearly was a great song for his voice...
