Country superstar and Oklahoman Blake Shelton lost no time in organizing a benefit concert to help the victims of last week’s deadly tornado in Moore. The May 20 storm killed 24 people (including 10 children) and injured 377 others. It also destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, devastating a community that had already seen its share of turmoil from tornadoes. Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Usher, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Ryan Tedder and a growing list of artists are scheduled to perform at Healing in the Heartland, a concert to raise money for the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s tornado relief fund to benefit those affected by the tornado.
The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City, but alas the show is completely sold out. You can, however, watch it live with the rest of the world on TV. The concert will be televised at 8 p.m. that night on NBC stations and on its affiliate cable channels including Style, E!, G4, Bravo and CMT with a telethon to raise additional funds. The concert is underwritten by Love’s Travel Stops. Learn more at www.chesapeakearena.com.
