“When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin, no ethnicity, no religious beliefs, no sexual preferences, and no political persuasions. It just loves,” said Stevie Wonder, who joined a roster of celebrities Tuesday night, volunteering their time to help raise money for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Wonder sang “Lean On Me’’ at the hourlong benefit named “Hand in Hand,’’ which was broadcast on four networks.
In 60 minutes, celebrities helped to raise $14.5 million for hurricane victims.
Many celebrities were there to lend a hand: Oprah was on the phones, along with Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Julianne Moore, Bruce Willis, Sofia Vergara, and Julia Roberts and many others.
Justin Timberlake shared stories while photos and videos showing experiences of folks impacted were displayed in the background, and loads of artists performed.
