A HUGE benefit will be aired tonight across the NBC stations, with some of the biggest stars in music joining together.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Billy Joel are all set to appear on “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together,” a benefit concert to aid the victims of the storm that devastated the Northeast.
The special will air Friday at 8 p.m. ET on the networks of NBC Universal. The “Today” show’s Matt Lauer will serve as host, with NBC News’ Brian Williams and “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon also set to make appearances.
Money collected will be donated to the American Red Cross relief efforts, which are providing food, shelter, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy as well as other disasters. To make a donation, visit RedCross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 contribution to their cause.
But you won’t see Staten Island giving much to the Red Cross, which has come under fire for their lack of response in that area to Sandy. Borough president slammed them in the Observer.
