TMZ reports that a number of the celebs will be manning phones and taking calls from donors.

Hand in Hand will be available in the USA on ABC, Bravo, CBS, CMT, E!, FOX, HBO, MTV, MTV2, MTV Live, MTV Classic NBC and Oxygen in addition to live-streaming internationally via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, AOL, Huffington Post and Yahoo starting at 8:00pm EST during the first broadcast.

Hurricane relief is an issue that's close to Bun B's heart-the rapper has been working for weeks to get life-saving supplies and care to Houston's underserved zipcodes. Strait, a Country Music Hall of Fame member who is leading the country music world in these efforts, will perform directly from his benefit concert at San Antonio's Majestic Theatre.

Beyonce and George Clooney will punctuate a star-studded telethon hosted by NBC on Tuesday night to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The telethon will be broadcast from Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, with a finale performance from Texas featuring George Strait. You can see the program that begins at 8 p.m. right here and is being streamed all over the world.

Government scraps public sector pay cap
Responding to the announcement, TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said "this below-inflation pay offer is pathetic". Unison general secretary, Dave Prentis, said: "It's a tiny step in the right direction but not almost enough".

A Benefit for Hurricane Relief today announced additional beneficiaries in the wake of Hurricane Irma's devastation.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Scooter Braun was part of the team that put this event together along with Bun B. It was Bun B who thought of the idea to have a telethon while he was thinking of ways to help his Texas community.

The special was originally targeted for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Originally planned exclusively as a benefit for Hurricane Harvey, Tuesday's one-hour telethon will air commercial-free at 8 p.m. "The telethon is going to be good", Braun said.
