The Musician Aid Japan Project, launched by the artist in collaboration with singer-songwriter AI, also aims to deliver live music to fans who are unable to see their favorite artists perform live.

The project will continue to release videos, some free of charge and others for a fixed monthly fee, featuring special sessions by musicians and performers. All proceeds from the YouTube channel will be divided equally among the participating musicians.
