Some of music’s biggest names are lending their support to Japan with a compilation benefit album, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

Universal Music artists Justin Bieber, Bon Jovi, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and U2 are just some of the music superstars who will contribute songs to the digital benefit album, which will aid those affected by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that wreaked havoc on the island nation earlier this month.

The artists and Universal Music Group will donate their royalties and proceeds from the album’s worldwide sales to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

The album’s track listing, release date and title have not been finalized.
