Parts of the revenues generated by all the downloads will be used in helping the US Olympic Team.
"We couldn't be more excited about our artist lineup and what they're doing to help support Team USA and these athletes. The way these artists came together to produce the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack really represents the true spirit of the Olympic Games. One of our main Team USA sponsorship goals is to connect fans to these amazing athletes and generate excitement for them as they compete at the Olympic Games. The AT&T Team USA Soundtrack is a great way to make this connection," declared Jamie Butcher, vice president of AT&T Brand Sponsorships.
