Kuraki has been involved with all kinds of charity work since the Tohoku Earthquake struck in March. She kicked off the live as she expressed, "Today's live will be delivered to disaster-stricken areas, regions all over the country, and even worldwide. Let's all put our hearts together, and enjoy this moment."
As a special project, Kuraki collaborated with a flute orchestra from Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they performed her charity song, "Anata ga Iru Kara", and 7 ballads. Kuraki then continued to sing "Brave your heart", "Your Best Friend", and "Strong Heart", for a total of 28 songs.

During the encore, Kuraki called out to her fans, "Turn on your cell phones, and shine the light! Let's light hope within our hearts for tomorrow!", and sang "Chance for you". Before wrapping up her concert, she delivered a strong message to her fans saying, "Without forgetting these feelings, let's put our strengths together to continuously work towards recovery. Let's start with things that we can do."
