Help Japan

With the recent earthquake and tsunami devastation in Japan, the two entities united to create a charitable opportunity to give back to the mothers and children in Japan. Our songwriters, Matt Palmer and Pascal Guyon, collaborated with a children's choir from HoriPro Music Academy to record and film Be Strong.

It is our hope that the song and video will inspire a donation to the mothers and children of Japan, who have long left our news headlines, but still face the reality of rebuilding their lives and the lives of their children, each day.

HORIPRO RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO TO RAISE SUPPORT FUNDS FOR JAPANLos Angeles, CA, June 2, 2011—Musicians from HoriPro Publishing and Music Instruction Academy offer “Be Strong.” in exchange for a donation to help mothers and children in Japan
In response to the March 11th earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, HoriPro Entertainment Group songwriters Matt Palmer and Pascal Guyon teamed up to write an inspirational song dedicated to the mothers and children affected by this tragedy. A few weeks later, a choir of children from the Los Angeles HORIPRO Music Academy, ages 3-13, joined the effort to add their voices to the song, and make a music video to accompany their message of hope.

It is HoriPro’s intent to create awareness of the continued need for relief aid to the mothers and children of Japan. As such, HoriPro Entertainment Group is hosting a donation site,, offering a song/video package of “Be Strong.” available for download for a minimum donation of $5.00.
The campaign is designed to give contributors control over where their money is sent by allowing 3 options for charities focused on aiding mothers and children—UNICEF, Save the Children, or JOICFP. 100% of net proceeds will be delivered to the organization of their choice.
HoriPro is delivering the following official statement:
“Help spread the message of hope and support. Be Strong. Pass it on.”
