5 ex-US presidents appear together for hurricane aid

Five Former Presidents to Appear at Hurricane Relief Concert

"All five living former U.S. presidents will be attending a concert Saturday night in a Texas college town, raising money for relief efforts from hurricane devastation in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands".

After Hurricane Harvey struck Texas in September, all five started the charity effort and filmed a video urging citizens to help out amid the devastating flooding.

Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have delivered a message of unity.

Sitting behind a white grand piano, Gaga performed easily, smiling and chatting with the audience in between songs, according to the Daily Mail. Obama served as president between 2009 and 2017.

"To Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Melania and I want to express our deep gratitude for your tremendous assistance", Trump says in the message.

Then she took this photo with the former presidents, which is nothing short of iconic.

This rise is due largely to the London and Manchester terror attacks, where the police recorded 294 attempted murder offences'. The number of homicides actually dropped 2 percent to 664, even with the terror-related killings in London and Manchester.

"Let's all work together and make America still a greater volunteer nation", said Carter, making an apparent play on President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. Shortly thereafter, all five ex-presidents appeared in a commercial for a fundraising effort known as "One America Appeal".

"The heartbreaking devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma and Maria and Nate, along with the awful wildfires in California, have impacted millions of our fellow Americans", Trump said in the video. The fund has raised more than $31 million for relief.

Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance at the benefit, which also featured performances by Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore and Yolanda Adams.

"As we begin to rebuild, some of America's finest public servants are spearheading the One America Appeal", said Trump, whose administration's response to the heavy storm damage in Puerto Rico has drawn fire. "And in a time of catastrophe, we all put our differences aside and we come together, 'cause we need each other, or we can't survive", Lady Gaga said.

As of Sunday afternoon, the One America Appeal charity effort had raised almost $33 million in tax-deductible, private funds from more than 80,000 donors, according to organizers.
