Yoshiki’s charitable donation was delivered via MusiCares, which will go to fund MusiCares’ present hurricane relief efforts going on via the Yoshiki Foundation America chapter, where 100% of all the donations to MusiCares go to those affected by the storms.
“I’m from Japan but I live in America,” said Yoshiki. When Japan got hit by the Tsunami earthquake in 2011, the people of America supported Japan. I was really moved by that, so I'd like to keep supporting America as much as I can. My heart goes out to all those who are affected.”
Yoshiki’s donation comes at the same time as wildly successful visual kei group X Japan release their We Are X film on DVD. There’s a new album on the way from the rockers, too, the first in over 21 years, slated for release in 2018. It’s a great time to be an X Japan fan for sure, and Yoshiki’s kindness is certainly not overlooked by music fans the world over.
