Nearly eight months after a devastating typhoon ravaged the Philippines, Apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas and his foundation are putting together one of the most unusual fundraising events on the concert calendar. Unlike other musicians fronting charities, Apl.de.ap has already pinpointed where the funds will be dispersed, which should give fans more confidence that their money will help those who need it. The rapper is calling upon not only fellow Black Eye Peas will.i.am and Taboo but also a slew of other famous friends to help raise awareness for the efforts to rebuild the country. Among a slew of other performers, comedians and DJs lending their names to help rebuild the Southeast Asian country: Talib Kweli; superstar producer Chad Hugo's latest project, Yardnoise; and dance crew Jabbawockeez.
