London Songs for Japan on Saturday news

The London Songs for Japan: One Year after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami event will happen this Saturday, March 10 2012. For this special cause, there will be a special venue, special schedule and special performances.

St. George’s Church in Bloomsbury (near Tottenham Court Road and Holburn tube station) will be the venue of this marvellous occasion.  As well as original Japanese performers, there will also be incredible, will-empowering songs such as Ghibli OSTs and Puccini, Johan Strauss and The Beatles.

As the anniversary date of the devastation that his the Asian country we all support and admire so much, charity events and various causes reappear on the horizon. It is great that for a whole year the people never stopped supporting those in need and I urge you all to never stop caring for the ones who have deserved help and warmth!
