Jake Shimabukuro’s “Amazing Grace” unites Celebs For Japan (Video)

Ukulele wunderkind Jake Shimabukuro has released his hypnotic take on “Amazing Grace” on iTunes. The beautiful cover is currently airing over an online charity video for Unite For Japan to benefit those affected by the recent earthquake and tsunami.

Produced by actor Ken Watanabe, the video features an all-star collection of cameos including John Legend, Ellen DeGeneres, Matt Damon, Katy Perry, John Travolta, Clint Eastwood and Shimabukuro himself.

A PSA that recently was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival and the Asian Pacific Film Festival also featured Jake’s “Wish On My Star”.

The video with Shimabukuro’s rendition of “Amazing Grace” can be viewed below. Check out both videos on Unite For Japan‘s official site here.
