In order to help Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia as well as the other countries affected by the tsunami disaster, a number of Czech pop musicians took part in a benefit concert on Sunday. The leading star and co-organizer was a young Czech pop-star Aneta Langerova.
"We came to this concert because we wanted to show our friend Lour Reed that young people have a sense of solidarity and are able to get enthusiastic over a good thing."
The concert that took place in Prague's Lucerna Palace has managed to
raise almost three million Crowns (100 thousand Euros). Another 1.5
million Crowns were collected through popular mobile phone text messages
which were sent by viewers who watched the concert in a TV broadcast.
