There will be a national day of mourning on 11 March.
Clara Montes, Javier Gurruchaga, Ana Belén, the band La Oreja de Van Gogh, Ismael Serrano, Andy y Lucas, Ana Torroja, Mónica Naranjo, Fito Páez, Valderrama, María Dolores Pradera, Pablo Milanés, Sergio Dalma and Aute are the stars who feature on the CD.
It will also feature readings by some of the artists who said the CD was conceived "to maintain the memory, so as not to forget and to mitigate the pain".

All proceeds from the sale of the CD will be given to the Fundation for the Victims of Terrorism.
