Blake Shelton is partnering with NBC to organize a benefit concert for the victims of the tornado that ripped through Oklahoma on May 20, killing at least 24 people and destroying the city of Moore, Okla.

“We’ll know more about it in the next 24 hours,” Shelton told Billboard at the conclusion of the Tuesday edition of The Voice. “I’m hoping it will raise a lot of money. Obviously it will be televised and will happen really quickly.”

Shelton hails from Ada, Okla., located approximately 75 miles south of where the tornado touched down.

The singer and his wife Miranda Lambert opened Tuesday’s edition of The Voice with Lambert’s recent hit ballad, “Over You.”

“I think it was the perfect song for this situation,” Shelton said. “The moment was right and I wish things would’ve been different and I wouldn’t have been thinking about performing a song like that.”
