My Chemical Romance - My Chemical Romance Record Japan Relief Anthem

Rockers My Chemical Romance have tweaked their hit song Sing to raise funds for the Japanese earthquake/tsunami relief effort.
The tune Sing It For Japan has been released as a download on iTunes.com with all proceeds from sales benefitting the American Red Cross.
The song is a re-interpretation of the band's single, Sing, and has been produced and arranged by the group's guitarist Ray Toro.
The track features Los Angeles Philharmonic conductor Suzie Katayama, who created the new tune's orchestral arrangement.
Toro tells WENN, "Ever since our first show there, My Chemical Romance have always shared a special connection with Japan.
"We received news of the events unfolding there while on tour and it affected us in a profound way. We were inspired by our fans to set to work on re-imagining Sing... Using classic Japanese themes in the orchestration, we hope we have honoured and paid tribute to the people of Japan."
