Aguilera, Bon Jovi to Perform at Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert
As many on the East Coast try to get their lives back to normal after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, NBC has announced an hour-long benefit concert for victims of the storm. Christina Aguilera and a host of rockers will perform live on ‘Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together,’ which airs this Friday night, Nov. 2, at 8PM ET.
Also performing on the broadcast are Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, both natives of New Jersey, which suffered some of the worst hurricane damage, and Bronx-born, Long Island-raised Billy Joel. Sting is also set to perform. Matt Lauer will host the special from 30 Rock Studios and late-night host Jimmy Fallon will make an appearance.
The telethon aims to raise money for Sandy victims and will air on NBC and its cable networks, including CNBC, MSNBC, Style, Syfy and G4. For those not near a television, the event will be streamed live on nbc.com. All donations go to the American Red Cross’ relief efforts. Anyone who wants to lend a hand immediately can visit the Red Cross website.
