Healing the Heartland Concert

The Oklahoma native and singer Blake Shelton held an all-star concert this past Wednesday, May 29, to raise money for the Oklahoma Tornado victims. The Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert was held in Oklahoma city and more than 14,000 people attended to help victims. Performers for the event included Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Vince Gill, and Usher.

It was a very emotional event. One of the most touching moments was when Miranda Lambert had to stop singing her song, ‘The House That Built Me’, because she could not stop crying. The audience started singing the song and gave the support she needed to continue her performance. The concert ended with the only duet performance between Blake Shelton and Usher singing ‘Home’ by Michael Bublé. 

The amount raised has not been announce yet, but we hope they met, or exceeded, their goals. The Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert did not repair the damage in Oklahoma, but it gave the victims some joy amongst all of the tragedy.
