The five living former presidents — Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — are joining forces to raise money for One America Appeal later this month in Texas. All of them plan to attend “Deep From the Heart,” a star-studded hurricane relief concert on Oct. 21 at Texas A&M University’s Reed Arena in College Station. Proceeds will benefit hurricane victims in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.

“The 43rd President and I, and our distinguished colleagues in this 'One America Appeal,' are very grateful to these wonderful performers — some of them old friends, some of them new — for giving their time and talent to help the urgent cause of hurricane recovery in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean,” the elder Bush said in a statement. “It’s important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we’re with them for the long haul."
According to a press release, the concert will be hosted by Lee Greenwood and feature performances by Alabama, the Gatlin Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore, Yolanda Adams, Cassadee Pope and Stephanie Quayle.
