Hurricane Harvey Relief Telethon To Air Next Week
A one-hour telethon to benefit Hurricane Harvey victims will be simulcast next week on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CMT. The event will be telecast live at 8 p.m. Eastern on Sept. 12. It’s organized by Houston rapper Bun B and Scooter Braun, founder of SB Projects. The show will also be streamed live on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Beyoncé, Blake Shelton, Barbra Streisand and Oprah Winfrey are all set to headline.
George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Dennis Quaid, Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Ryan Seacrest, Michael Strahan, Kelly Rowland, George Strait, Reese Witherspoon and others are all set to participate with either taped or live messages.
The telethon will air from Los Angeles, but there will be stages in New York and Nashville. The star-studded event is sure to raise a lot of money for the people of Houston and draw in a huge crowd to watch Beyonce’s performance alone.
