Big name musicians like Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, Pink and the Kings of Leon are offering up their music to include on a new charity album called “Flood Relief – Artists for the Flood Appeal.”
Proceeds will go to help the victims of the flood in Australia, which has devastated Queensland, forcing thousands of people to evacuate the area. A few dozen others, still missing, are feared to have perished.
The flood hit on January 11th and celebrities are doing their part to take swift action. Jamie Oliver set up a kitchen to provide meals to those who currently don’t have homes. And Oprah Winfrey, who has been doing quite a bit of filming for her Ultimate Australian Adventure, has asked her fans to support the clean up efforts.
