Tsunami benefit performances will be available as charity downloads
Performances from “Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope” will be available for download on Sony Connect, NBC announced today.
In association with the event, Sony’s Connect music store will offer exclusive downloads of live performances from the concert. All proceeds from download sales will be donated to the American Red Cross International Response Fund, and Sony Corporation of America will match the first $100,000 raised through domestic download sales.
Downloads will be available at www.connect.com – that means that they will be available to customers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Monaco and the Netherlands, the countries in which connect.com has been already launched.
Brad Pitt, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Robert DeNiro, Josh Groban, Jay Leno, Natalie Portman, Nicolette Sheridan, Andy Garcia, Hugh Grant and Naomi Watts have joined the lineup for the benefit special and SBC Communications will underwrite the two-hour, commercial-free event.
