Justin Timberlake, Leonardo DiCaprio and More Join 'Hand in Hand' Hurricane Telethon Lineup
The event organized by Scooter Braun and Houston rapper Bun B will feature artists appearing in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville.
Justin Timberlake, Dave Matthews, Leonardo DiCaprio and Travis Scott are among the names that have been added to the growing list of participants in Tuesday night's "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief."
The one-hour special (8-9 p.m. ET) that will air on all major TV networks was organized by manager Scooter Braun and Houston rapper Bun B, with artists appearing in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville, Tenn. (See the full list of confirmed participants below.)
The telecast will be available on ABC, BET, Bravo, CBS, CMT, E, Fox, HBO, iHeartMedia, MTV, NBC, Oxygen, SiriusXM, Univision and Westwood One, along with AOL, Apple Music, Beats 1, Facebook, HuffPost, Twitter, Yahoo and YouTube, with proceeds going to the following charities: Rebuild Texas Fund, ASPCA, Best Friends, Direct Relief, Feeding Florida, Feeding Texas, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children and United Way.
After raising $13 million for the British Red Cross through an all-star concert event in Manchester, England, following the bombing outside the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that left 22 people dead, Braun teamed with Bun B to try and help those impacted by this month's two killer storms.
As with any telethon of its kind, the next step involved assembling a list of people who could get the most attention for the special, starting with Braun.
“Whether they lost people or they lost homes, or whatever it may be, if you can do something, you should,” Braun said. “My hope is that, with this, we inspire people in our industry and in other industries to do something also. During this time, when there’s so much division, we need to fight back with action and unity.… This is bigger than Texas, this is bigger than Florida. We want to come together as a nation and believe in that idea that we all signed up for, that when things get tough, we stick together.”
The all-star show aimed at raising funds for those impacted by Hurricane's Harvey and Irma will feature performances, appearances and special messages from its all-star lineup. See the full list here.
