The country music star George Strait, also from Texas, will perform directly from his benefit concert at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio. Other performances will be broadcast from Times Square in New York, Universal Studios in Los Angeles and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
The team producing the concert includes Bun B — one of half the hip-hop duo UGK, who was pivotal in bringing Houston rap to the mainstream — and Scooter Braun, who organized the recent One Love Manchester benefit concert featuring Ariana Grande. Donations will be accepted via phones, text messaging and the telethon’s website, HandInHand2017.com. Proceeds will benefit United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children and other organizations.
