Willie Nelson - Willie Nelson And Jack Johnson Help To Raise Funds For Japan

Country legend Willie Nelson and singer/songwriter Jack Johnson helped to raise $1.6 million (£1 million) for Japanese earthquake/tsunami relief efforts on Sunday (10Apr11) by performing at a charity concert in Hawaii.
The stars joined Fleetwood Mac rocker Mick Fleetwood and musician Michael MCDonald on the bill for the Kokua for Japan gig in Oahu.
Speaking after the show on Sunday, Coralie Chun Matayoshi, head of the Hawaiian branch of the American Red Cross, says, "Kokua for Japan was truly a labour of love to show our care and concern for the people of Japan.
"We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support that Hawaii's people have shown today. Their compassion will give strength to humanitarian efforts in Japan as we help them recover from this terrible tragedy. We want to thank everyone involved in this event for their wonderful contribution to the cause of humanity."
