Famous faces sat by the phone and took in donations from Los Angeles, New York City, Nashville and San Antonio. After calling for unity, he then blurted out, "Anyone who believes there's no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent". Beyoncé, a well-known Houston native, shared remarks soon after Wonder's performance also commenting on the issue of climate change. "Lord save us all".

Music legend Stevie Wonder says he wants people who don't believe in climate change to open their eyes. "Just this past week you've seen devastation from the monsoon in India, an 8.1 natural disaster in Mexico, and two catastrophic hurricanes".

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have resulted in the deaths of almost 100 people in Florida and Texas. "We have to prepared for what comes next so tonight we come together in a collective effort to raise our voices, help our communities, to lift our spirits and heal", she concluded.

Wonder has been a vocal climate activist. "We can't just talk about it, we have to be about it", Wonder told AOL during the event.

"During the time where it's impossible to watch the violence or racism in this country, just when you think it couldn't possibly get worse". Wonder made no mention of President Trump, who pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord, or other members of his administration, which has proposed heavy cuts to federal funding of climate change research.

"To have any kind of focus on the cause and effect of the storm; versus helping people, or actually facing the effect of the storm, is misplaced", Pruitt told CNN.
