Thankfully we survived Hurricane Sandy. Aside from a few power outages, flooded subways and cabin fever we weathered the storm with our Hurricane Sandy playlist. Surviving is one thing, but damage to the states of New Jersey and New York City is another. It’s going to be a long road to rebuilding and restoration. In an effort to help victims affected by the storm NBC Universal announced it will hold an one hour telethon with funds donated to the Red Cross.
“Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together” will air Friday at 8PM ET hosted by Matt Lauer with appearances by Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams. New Jersey natives Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi are scheduled to perform along with New Yorkers Billy Joel, Christina Aguilera and Sting. Here’s the thing about natural disasters: It brings out the beauty in humanity. It’s nice to see people, no matter their social status, come together to help those in need. Will you be tuned in to catch the live performances?
