Blake Shelton Planning Tornado Relief Concert

Blake Shelton has a big idea to help his home state of Oklahoma and all the relief efforts after the tornadoes impacted the cities of Moore and Oklahoma City earlier in the week.

 

TheBoot.com has more on a Blake Shelton & Friends Benefit Concert:

At the end of Tuesday nights episode of 'The Voice,' Blake Shelton revealed that he's working with NBC to organize a benefit concert for the victims of Monday's (May 20) deadly tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. The singer -- who calls the state home -- couldn't offer many details, but said it would be televised and happen soon.

"We'll know more about it in the next 24 hours," Shelton told Billboard. "I'm hoping it will raise a lot of money. Obviously it will be televised and will happen really quickly." The 'Boys 'Round Here' singer grew up in Ada, Okla., 75 miles from Moore.

He wouldn't name any other artists who've agreed to play, but his music industry connections should make it easy to assemble an A-list lineup. He's married to Miranda Lambert, managed by Reba McEntire's husband, is great friends with Kelly Clarkson and works with Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Shakira and Christina Aguilera on the show. None of those artists are as of yet thought to be participating, but Shelton did point to fellow 'The Voice' mentor Usher while saying, "I can call in some really big favors."

 

Can't wait to see what Blake can do to raise money!
