Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey will host a star-studded virtual benefit concert for Texans still recovering from devastating winter Storm Uri.
The concert, to be held on March 21 at 8 pm ET, will be available on YouTube. It will also be broadcast exclusively for Spectrum News 1 subscribers across Texas.
The line up of artists who are scheduled to perform include The Eagles‘ Don Henley, George Strait, Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, Khalid, Kirk Franklin, Miranda Lambert, Post Malone, Randy Rogers, and Willie Nelson.
Additional celebrity appearances include Jonas Brothers, Megan Thee Stallion and Selena Gomez.
“A lot of Texans are hurting right now,” Matthew McConaughey said in a statement. “After the disaster of the worst freeze here in over 70 years, so many are still without clean water, and unable to repair water damage that has made their homes unlivable.”
“One of my favorite things about Texans is that we like to help ourselves, and while that spirit is still alive and well, a lot of Texans can’t help themselves right now unless we help them,” he added. “The We’re Texas Virtual Event features an all-star lineup of Texas talent for a night to restore Texas. It’s time.”
