Flooded street in Houston after Hurricane Harvey

Harvey Can't Mess with Texas: A Benefit For Concert for Hurricane Harvey Relief, taking place next Friday, Sept. 22, at UT's Frank Erwin Center, extends a "Bridge Over Troubled Water" with marquee acts raising money for victims of the most recent natural disaster. "Now we have an opportunity to do good by being our best, and that means putting on a show and having a good time". During the stream, Google will match donations up to $500,000, according to Rolling Stone.

The TV stations that will air the special include: WFAA, Dallas; KHOU, Houston; KVUE, Austin; KENS, San Antonio; KBMT, Beaumont; KCEN, Waco-Temple-Bryan; KAGS, College Station; KIII, Corpus Christi; KYTX, Tyler; KIDY, San Angelo; and KXVA, Abilene. "I'll be there and hope to see you, too".

The event will be broadcast on YouTube and will raise funds for Rebuild Texas, an organization that supports both short- and long-term relief efforts after the estimated $100 billion damage from Hurricane Harvey. The fund focuses on health and housing; schools and child care; the workforce and transportation; and capital for small businesses. "For us, this is personal", his wife Susan Dell added.

Headliner Nelson, a native Texan and defining country singer, has always been active in charity and spearheaded the Farm Aid concerts. "We will be rebuilding for years to come", said Michael Dell. TEGNA is producing the broadcast in partnership with Debra Davis Productions.

Buddy Iahn founded The Music Universe when he made a decision to juxtapose his love of web design and music. The website began as a fun project in 2013 to one of the top independent news sites.
