Star Power Steps Up on Tuesday’s Telethon for Hurricane Relief

These are some of the stars who’ve already signed up to participate with appearances, performances, taped tributes, and messages:

Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Stephen Colbert, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Drake, Hilary Duff, Jimmy Fallon, Jamie Foxx, Richard Gere, Tom Hanks, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Jay Leno, Jared Leto, Eva Longoria, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Tim McGraw, Tracy Morgan, Tyler Perry, Jeremy Renner, Julia Roberts, Adam Sandler, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Jon Stewart, Barbra Streisand, Sofia Vergara, Oprah Winfrey, and Reese Witherspoon.

Houston native rapper Bun B was one of the principals in the creation of the show, after his hometown was hit by Hurricane Harvey — before Irma was on the horizon.

Hand in Hand will bring the country together to raise funds, spirits and help rebuild in the wake of unprecedented devastation. Proceeds from the telethon will benefit United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief (administered by the Greater Houston Community Fund). The Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund will be managed by Comic Relief USA.
