will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and Benji Madden of the Good Charlotte are compiling playlists of their favorite songs to be auctioned for a charity project. Another musician to join them in the fundraising is DJ Samantha Ronson.
The three musicians will load exclusive new one-of-a-kind iPods with their favorite songs from famous singers. They also have signed the MP3 players, which are currently up for auction on Tonic.com. All proceeds from the project will benefit Music Rising, an organization that replaces lost or destroyed instruments in the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged Gulf Coast region.
Among will.i.am's favorites are Public Enemy's "Fight the Power", A Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Apple Bum" and Frank Sinatra's "The Girl From Ipanema". Meanwhile, Benji lands his choices on Blink-182's "Stay Together for the Kids", Weezer's "Butterfly" and The Game's "Let's Ride".
As for Samantha, her playlist includes Lily Allen's "The Fear", John Lennon's "Bring on the Lucie" and Britney Spears' "Circus". Many other big stars are scheduled to add their favorite playlists for the auction in the coming months.
