Former Presidents To Host Hurricane Relief Concert In Texas

All five living former US Presidents—Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter—will come together to host the hurricane recovery benefit concert, Deep From The Heart: The One America Appeal, set for Oct. 21 at Texas A&M’s Reed Arena. Funds raised from the event will benefit those affected by hurricanes in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean.

The concert will feature performances from Alabama, Lee Greenwood, The Gatlin Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore, Yolanda Adams, Cassadee Pope and Stephanie Quayle.

The One America Appeal launched Sept. 7 when all five living former presidents aired a joint PSA during the NFL’s regular season opening broadcast. All proceeds from the Oct. 21 concert will go toward the effort.

“Thanks to our very generous underwriters, we can once again state that every dollar we raise through ticket sales for our ‘Deep From the Heart’ show will go to our designated hurricane recovery funds,” said David Jones, CEO of the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation. “So grab your friends and join us at Reed Arena on October 21st for what promises to be a truly unforgettable night that also helps a lot of Americans.”

A special restricted account has been established through the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation to collect and distribute donations to assist hurricane victims. Donations will be distributed to Houston Harvey Relief Fund, focusing on the greater Houston region, as well as to Rebuild Texas Fund, assisting hurricane-ravaged communities across the state, Florida Disaster Fund, Juntos y Unidos Por Puerto Rico, launched by First Lady Beatriz Rossello and a private sector coalition, and The Fund for the Virgin Islands.
