Joe McElderry’s on a mission to help Japan – Chronicle News – News – ChronicleLive

NORTH East X Factor champ Joe McElderry is hoping his star power will help raise money for victims of the Japanese tsunami.

Ahead of recording his latest solo album, South Shields lad Joe will take to the stage in Tyneside for the first time this year to headline JapaNOISE.

He has met the organisers of the one-off concert, which aims to raise £50,000 for the Japanese Disaster Fund.

The event, which will be held at The Sage Gateshead later this month, was the brainchild of Northumbrian Water employee Jane Morland, from Ushaw Moor in County Durham.

Jane, along with Kingsley and Sayoko Smith from the North East Japanese Women’s Association, which estab-lished the Japanese Disaster Fund, got the chance to chat to Joe ahead of the gig to tell him about the devastating effects last March’s tsunami had on areas such as Fukushima and Miyagi.
