Tonight on GACTV.com, we’ll be streaming Blake Shelton‘s “Healing In The Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert” live at 9/8c as it airs on NBC. Usher and Darius Rucker have been added to the lineup of previously-announced performers including Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, as well as Grammy Award-winning artists Miranda Lambert, Reba and Vince Gill.
Tickets for the concert went on sale Saturday morning and sold out in under five minutes. The event will take place May 29 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. .
“Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy,” Blake said. “This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero.”
The event will raise funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Working with their local community partners, United Way of Central Oklahoma will use the Fund for immediate, intermediate and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts in Oklahoma following the tornadoes that devastated Moore.
