The telethon for relief for Hurricane Harvey’s victims, “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief,” already has some serious star power behind it.
Jamie Foxx announced the telethon earlier, and now, that announcement has become reality, with Foxx, Beyoncé, Oprah, Blake Shelton, Barbra Streisand, George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon all set to participate.
The telethon will last for an hour and will be simulcast live on ABC, CBS, CMT, Fox and NBC on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. Eastern and replay on the West Coast at 8 p.m. Pacific. During that hour’s time, donations by phone, by text, and online will be accepted, with donations continuing to be accepted an hour afterward.
