Recording artists donated their time and talent for a Sandy relief benefit album.

The Manhattan-based label MPress Records organized independent artists from around the world to pay tribute to victims of the storm in song.

One of the singers, Rachael Sage, said she received more than 1,000 submissions.

"A lot of them were New York-based artists who had really had their own stories and their own experiences with Sandy," Sage said. "They had lost power. Some of them had also lost their belongings and had family members who lost businesses and the like. So it's really a very meaningful project for everyone involved."

All proceeds from the benefit CD are donated to the Red Hook Initiative, Project Hospitality, the Staten Island Relief Fund and Graybeards.
