Bush 41 Just Made A Big Announcement – And It Has All 5 Former Presidents Flying To Houston
George H. W. Bush made an announcement Tuesday That has all former living Presidents on their way to Houston, Texas.
Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter will attend the “Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal” concert on October 21st to benefit hurricane victims.
The acts slated to play at the event include ALABAMA, the Gatlin Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore, Yolanda Adams, Cassadee Pope and Stephanie Quayle. Country music artist Lee Greenwood will emcee the event.
All 5 living former Presidents came together for “The One America Appeal” already, releasing a video in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey in September.
They have since resumed the effort in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria.
“We love you Texas,” the elder Bush, who raised his family in Texas and previously served as a congressman from the state, said in a video posted to the One America Appeal site.
Three of the 5 living former Presidents were together just last week at the opening of the Presidents Cup golf tournament in Jersey City, New Jersey — Clinton, Bush 43 and Obama.
The event will serve primarily as a fundraiser with proceeds from all ticket sales going to a number of charities including; the Houston Harvey Relief Fund, focusing on the greater Houston region; Rebuild Texas Fund, assisting hurricane-ravaged communities across the state; the Florida Disaster Fund; Juntos y Unidos Por Puerto Rico, launched by First Lady Beatriz Rossello and a private sector coalition; and The Fund for the Virgin Islands.
