FORMER PRESIDENTS OBAMA, BUSH 43, CLINTON, BUSH 41 AND CARTER TO HEADLINE OCT 21ST CONCERT BENEFITING HURRICANE RELIEF EFFORTS

 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas.The
George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation today announced a
hurricane relief concert at Texas A&M’s Reed Arena the evening of
October 21st featuring former Presidents Obama, Bush 43, Clinton, Bush
41 and Carter joined by top music performers. All ticket sales and other
proceeds from the “Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal” concert
will go to the special hurricane recovery effort launched last month by
the five living former U.S. presidents.

 

Together
with all five living former presidents, the show at Reed Arena will
feature America’s Patriot and Grammy winner LEE GREENWOOD as emcee and
performer, Grammy winners and producers of 43 #1 hits, ALABAMA, Texas
music legend THE GATLIN BROTHERS, four-time Grammy winner LYLE LOVETT,
Texas great ROBERT EARL KEEN, legendary Grammy-award winning, Rock &
Roll Hall of Famer ‘Soul Man’ SAM MOORE, gospel legend YOLANDA ADAMS,
season three winner of NBC’s “The Voice,” CASSADEE POPE, and rising
country artist STEPHANIE QUAYLE, who Rolling Stone Country called one of
the “Ten New Country Music Artists You Need to Know.”

 

Tickets for the “Deep From the Heart” concert are now on sale at bush41.org/deep-from-the-heart.

 

The
One America Appeal was launched September 7th when all five living
former presidents aired a joint PSA on the NFL’s regular season opening
broadcast and launched a website accepting tax-deductible donations at OneAmericaAppeal.org.

 

Originally,
the former presidents were inspired to come together in the aftermath
of Hurricane Harvey, which unleashed devastating flooding that
threatened hundreds of thousands of Texans — and spurred thousands of
first responders and neighbors into action. The effort has since
expanded twice to include recovery efforts in Florida from Hurricane
Irma, and in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from Hurricane
Maria.

 

A
special restricted account has been established through the George H.
W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation to collect and distribute
donations to every dollar given goes to assist hurricane victims.
Donations will be distributed to:

 

  • Houston Harvey Relief Fund, focusing on the greater Houston region
  • Rebuild Texas Fund, assisting hurricane-ravaged communities across the state
  • Florida Disaster Fund
  • Juntos y Unidos Por Puerto Rico, launched by First Lady Beatriz Rossello and a private sector coalition
  • The Fund for the Virgin Islands

 

“Thanks
to our very generous underwriters, we can once again state that every
dollar we raise through ticket sales for our ‘Deep From the Heart’ show
will go to our designated hurricane recovery funds,” said David Jones,
CEO of the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation. “So grab
your friends and join us at Reed Arena on October 21st for what promises
to be a truly unforgettable night – that also helps a lot of
Americans.”

ABOUT LEE GREENWOOD:

Throughout his expansive career, international country music icon Lee
Greenwood has earned multiple CMA and ACM Awards, a Grammy Award for
Top Male Vocal Performance on “I.O.U,” in 1985, and a multitude of other
prestigious award nominations. His discography includes twenty-two
studio albums, seven compilation albums, seven No. 1 hits and
thirty-eight singles including songs like “It Turns Me Inside Out,”
“Ring On Her Finger Time on Her Hand,” “She’s Lyin,” “I don’t Mind the
Thorns if You’re the Rose,” “Dixie Road,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,”
“Going Going Gone,” “You Got A Good Love Comin,” among others. His
stand-out hit “God Bless the U.S.A.” has been in the top five on the
country singles charts three times (1991, 2001 and 2003), giving it the
distinction of being the only song in any genre of music to achieve that
feat. It was also No. 1 on the pop charts after 9/11. Known for his
stand-out patriotism and support of the U.S. Military, Greenwood has
been honored with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s National
Patriot’s Award, and entertained troops on more than 30 USO Tours. His
latest book release is a children’s book called “Proud To Be An
American,” which is currently available in stores, on Amazon and LeeGreenwood.com.

ABOUT SAM MOORE:

Sam Moore catapulted to international fame as the lead voice of the
1960s powerhouse duo “Sam & Dave,” a musical collaboration with
long-time partner and fellow Georgia native Dave Prater. The duo
recorded and performed together for 20 years, but it was the 1967’s hit
“Soul Man,” that found them lasting fame, defined a genre, and altered
the course of music history. Their signature sound influenced a diverse
array of musical talents, including Al Green, Michael Jackson, Lionel
Richie, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel and so many
others. Sam & Dave’s music and personas inspired the film The Blues Brothers,
and other hits like “Hold On I’m Coming” have appeared on the
soundtracks of more than a dozen films. After a storied career with
Prater, Moore has spent the past 35 years enjoying a long solo career,
recording with some of the biggest names in numerous genres of music,
including Conway Twitty, with whom he recorded the hit song “Rainy Night
in Georgia.” In 1992, Moore was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall
of Fame, capping a career that includes a Grammy, and honors from the
Vocal Music Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, and the Rhythm and
Blues Foundation. Moore was the recipient of the first ever MOBO Living
Legends Honor, and he received the NARAS Hero Award in 2003 and an AFTRA
AMEE Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. Moore, who turns 82 on October
12, continues to record and perform to critical acclaim as a solo
artist. He is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his Grammy
award-winning song “Soul Man” this year and recently accepted a position
as Artist in Residence at Florida International University as part of
the College of Arts, Sciences & Education Humanities Project.
