Hollywood’s biggest stars are uniting to help thousands of hurricane victims in need. The likes of Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Beyonce and more took time out of their schedule on Tuesday night to participate in Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief. The charity event raised more than $14 million in just one hour.
“The elderly need wheelchairs and kids need books and toys so they can continue to dream,” Beyoncé shared in a video message. “Natural disasters don’t discriminate. They don’t see if you are an immigrant, black or white, Hispanic or Asian, Jewish or Muslim, wealthy or poor. It doesn’t matter if you are from Third World or River Oaks, we are all in this together.”
During the one-hour show, Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, Luis Fonsi, Usher and Blake Shelton performed inspiring songs for viewers at home. Apple donated $5 million and promised to double the donations made from its employees.
Selena Gomez added, “If we are going to get through all the storms that confront us, that’s how we are going to do it: Together, hand in hand.”
