The first month of digital and physical sales of the Songs For Japan charity album have generated $5 million for the Japanese Red Cross Society, according to Universal Music Group – which worked on the compilation together with other labels, publishers, collecting societies and iTunes. The charity received an initial payment of $2 million last month, and another $3 million earlier this week. The album was released as a digital album in late March, before 500,000 CDs were shipped early in April. More than 500,000 digital and physical copies have so far been sold.
