Rebecca Black Donating Friday Proceeds To Japan

Rebecca Black has been trending on Twitter for over a week, her YouTube hit ‘Friday’ has gotten over 42 million views, and she’s currently clocking in at number 39 on the iTunes top singles chart, beating out the likes of Justin Bieber, Train and Enrique Iglesias. With all this popularity, Rebecca Black has got the world wondering how much money she’s made on the single, as well as how she’ll be spending the money. According to an interview on Leno, this fresh YouTube star will be doing the noble thing and donating the proceeds to Japan and to her school.

That’s right. In an episode of Leno that aired earlier this week, Rebecca Black told Jay, “I’m donating the proceeds to Japan and to my school.” At her age I would have expected her to say that she was saving the proceeds to pay for her college education, or something like that. I think it is very moving and sweet that she’s donating the money to a good cause.
