A spontaneous gig in Los Angeles by Radiohead for Haitian earthquake relief raised more than $500,000. The show happened Sunday night at Henry Fonda Theater and was attended by many stars. Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Charlize Theron and Daniel Craig were spotted in the crowd.

Radiohead played for more than two hours and showcased their new song, Lotus Flower. Radiohead`s last long playing record was from 2007, In Rainbows. I`m a big fan, but have never seen them live. I do, however, have all of their records. The exact figure of money reported, that will go for earthquake relief is $572,754. (sources-RTT News and MSN Music)
