Blake Shelton’s “Healing in the Heartland” Relief Benefit Concert Being Carried Tonight on B105
Blake Shelton has organized, and will headline a live broadcast event called "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert"; which will take to the airwaves tonight (Wednesday, May 29) at 8 pm. You'll be able to listen live on the air and here on our website.
The event will feature Grammy Award-winning artist Miranda Lambert along with Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, and Rascal Flatts. Ryan Tedder of the pop group One Republic and R&B singer and fellow coach on 'The Voice' Usher will also appear during the program.
Shelton was born and raised in Oklahoma, and currently lives in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. He had the following to say about the event:
Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy. This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero.
The sold out show will take place at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, benefitting those impacted by the devastating E-F5 tornado that ravaged Moore, Oklahoma earlier this month. Funds will go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Working with their local community partners, United Way of Central Oklahoma will use the Fund for immediate, intermediate and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
Beside being able to listen to the live broadcast on B105 and through our online stream (stream/mobile), the event will also be televised on NBC at 8 pm CT. A number of cable channels will also carry the event on either a live or tape-delayed basis.
