The world’s biggest record label is aiming to have the effort completed by week’s end, with proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross.
Bieber, 17, said in an emotional Tweet: “Japan is one of my favorite places on earth … it’s an incredible culture with amazing people. My prayers go out to them. We all need to help, by being one of the first on board for the project.”
R&B star Ne-Yo is already in Japan playing charity shows and aiming to raise $100,000 for victims.
