In 2015, vocal group Isabella Acappella from the regional town of Lismore in Northern New South Wales, recorded the song “Hana wa Saku” (Flowers Will Bloom) on the album of the same name and toured Japan raising funds for the Tsunami recovery from concert tickets and CD sales.
Following the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, the song was produced by NHK to build public support for recovery efforts.
The lyrics are a message from those who lost their lives to the people they left behind. All royalties for musical composition and lyrics are being donated to the recovery effort.
