Gwen Stefani donated $1 million to help aid in Japan’s recovery, while other celebrities are coming together to record an all-star album to fundraise for the devastated country!

We love it when Hollywood uses its power for good! Justin Bieber, U2, and Rihanna are donating songs to a charity album to benefit the victims of Japan’s March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Lady Gaga — who already designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet following the tragedy — Nicki Minaj, and Bon Jovi are also interested taking part in the project. It’s going to be an amazing album!

Universal Records plans to release the album digitally by the end of next week in hopes of sending funds as quickly as possible to the Japanese Red Cross.

Other A-listers are doing their part to raise money for Japan as well. Sandra Bullock made a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross to aid the people of Japan. Gwen Stefani, a long-time fan of Japanese culture, also announced she will contribute $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

“I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture,” Gwen, 41, said. “The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years.”

Additionally, Gwen will launch an online charity auction on her band No Doubt’s website where fans can bid on chance to met her at charity event in Los Angeles.

Joe Jonas and many other celebrities have also taken to twitter to send their good wishes those affected by the tragedy. Japan is currently recovering from a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that took the lives of more than 9,000 people — and the death toll is expected to rise. What other celebrities would YOU like to see get involved raising money for Japan?
