All five living former U.S. presidents will come together in Texas on Saturday night for a hurricane relief fundraising concert. The event will be live streamed.
“Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal” is the latest chapter of an initiative first launched in early September to raise money and awareness for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Soon after former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter launched their “One America Appeal,” they expanded its focus to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Sadly, the five former leaders of the free world won’t be playing in the world’s most exclusive band on Saturday night. But they will speak about volunteerism, first responders and other important topics in the middle of a program that’s slated to include performances by Alabama, the Gatlins, Lyle Lovett, Yolanda Adams, Robert Earl Keen and others.
