A star-studded telethon for victims of Hurricane Harvey is in the works. Houston rapper Bun B tells “TMZ” that the event will be held in three cities: Los Angeles, New York and Nashville. It is being organized by those who planned the Ariana Grande One Love Manchester concert, including her talent manager, Scooter Braun.
Bun B also revealed that the hosts for the Nashville event will be Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton, for LA, Jamie Foxx and tentatively Hilary Duff, and New York, Michael Strahan. Organizers are supposedly trying to get Kelly Rowland and Jim Parsons involved, because both are Houston natives.
The telethon is expected to air September 12th on the major networks.
