The goal is to help victims of Hurricane Harvey - which clobbered the Gulf Coat two weeks ago - and Hurricane Irma, an even more powerful storm that is barreling towards Florida. It's called "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief".
Several celebrities will participate in the telethon including Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey and Julia Roberts. On the same night, George Strait is hosting a concert in San Antonio, Texas, featuring Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton and more, and portions of the show will be featured during the Hand in Hand telethon. Livestreamed versions of the broadcast will also be available via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Huffington Post and AOL starting at 8 p.m. EST. It is being organized by Houston rap artist Bun B and Scooter Braun, founder of SB Projects. "It's personal for me because it's home to me, it's in my city, but it's a national disaster".
George Strait is performing at the Majestic Theater on Tuesday as part of a benefit concert for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Proceeds will go to United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief.
Hand in Hand will be available in the US on ABC, BET, Bravo, CBS, CMT, E!, FOX, HBO, HBO Latino, MTV, MTV2, MTV Live, MTV Classic NBC, Oxygen and Univision. The reason we want people to tune is because we want people to show who we are.
