NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Diamond is donating this week’s sales from “Sweet Caroline” after the tune that’s a staple at Fenway Park became a source of comfort following the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

Sales from Diamond’s song are up by 597 percent, Nielsen SoundScan said. Diamond’s representative said the singer will donate the recent sales to marathon bombing victims.

“Sweet Caroline” sold 19,000 tracks this week. It sold 2,800 tracks the previous week and 1.75 million tracks to date.
