Lady Gaga is lending a hand or rather her voice to the people of Japan who have been effected by the countries recent 9.0-magnitude earthquake and following tsunami. The hitmaker will headline the 10th annual MTV Video Music Awards Japan, an event that has recently been called “MTV Video Music Aid Japan.”
The ceremony will air in June and will also feature various Asian stars including Japanese girl band AKB48 who will take to the stage at the Makuhari Messe Exhibition Center in Chiba
Organizers hope that the event will help generate millions of dollars which will be donated to the Red Cross of Japan which has been proving aid to those in need since the earthquake struck on March 11.
This isn’t the first time Gaga has thrown her hat into the ring to help Japan, she also contributed a song to the charity album Songs for Japan which helped raise money for the countries relief efforts, only to follow that contribution up later with a personal check for $1.5 million. Later Gaga also raised $1 million for the countries charities by selling wrist bands.
