Jamie Foxx Announces Telethon to Aid Victims of Hurricane Harvey
Love you, Jamie! You’re such a special guy!
TMZ reported that the telethon will take place in three cities: Los Angeles, New York and Nashville. A lot of big name stars have already been announced as participants. They include Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton from Nashville, Foxx and Hilary Duff from Los Angeles and Houston-native Michael Strahan from New York City.
There are many other Houston-born stars that are part of a wish list including Beyonce and her “Destiny’s Child” bandmate Kelly Rowland as well as “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons. Beyonce’s sister Solange announced her own benefit show will be held at Boston’s Orpheum Theater on September 28.
So proud of everyone getting involved. We rally for you, Texas. The hurricane has been devastating, and you’ve been in our hearts and prayers ever since. I’m proud to see so many of my friends trying to help raise money for those affected by the hurricane. This is so special.
