Kumi Koda to donate proceeds from song downloads to quake relief

13 Comments

Singer Kumi Koda, 28, has announced that she will donate proceeds from some of her song downloads to aid victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster.

Koda personally chose specific songs for the promotion. The three songs she chose -- “Comes Up,” “Walk” and “Kiseki” -- were chosen for their message of hope. Money made from downloads of the three songs through the end of September will go to the Japan Red Cross Foundation.

“I am working little by little to do what I can,” Koda said. “I chose these songs because I think they will put a smile on people's faces.”

While good news, I hope they don't start to use this donation plans to personal benefit.

To choose the songs her company is interested to promote, for example.

peaceforworld, you are optimistic person. Koda just uses her popularity and some songs to direct money from Japanese people to Japanese people. But respect is reserved for her reactions.

Good on her. Shame her concerts to the areas affected were cancelled, though.

i dont understand why its so hard for some to believe that she is doing this for self-promotional reasons. just because shes an entertainer doesnt mean she only has money and fame on her mind, im sure what shes doing comes from nothing but the best of intentions.

love her as much now as i ever did.

Thanks koda, but I am jobless to have money to pay your songs.

Sorry to hear that, but she has more to think about than just your situation. Perhaps seeing as you have all that free time, you can go volunteer to help the Red Cross/Crescent with what they're doing? Even if you're not actually in Japan, I'm sure your local chapter of the Red Cross/Crescent is doing SOMETHING for the victims that you can help with.

Koda, where are you? Fadamor echoed your feelings? Where is the right door? People know your actions:

Mai Kuraki is doing the same thing but is she being recognized...no! why is that? I am glad Koda is doing this but her music is sounding like a wack Britney Spears now, it's sad. They need to fire her producer.

I know this is for a good cause and everything, but with the amount of money she must be raking in, one thinks she could have done better than just three songs.

Anything is something. The common thought in this place when somebody successful or wealthy does something good, is always "why aren't they doing more? Why aren't they doing better?"

Anything is something.
