Gatlin Brothers Set to Perform at Hurricane Relief Event with Five Former U.S. Presidents in Attendance

Larry Gatlin to Appear on Fox & Friends and America's News HQ in Support of Hurricane Relief Event

Nashville, Tenn. (October 20, 2017) — On Saturday, October 21, the Gatlin Brothers will perform live at a special hurricane relief event featuring five former U.S. Presidents. Barack Obama, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter will all be in attendance. Steve and Rudy Gatlin will take the stage representing the Gatlin Brothers. Larry Gatlin will be in attendance but will not perform due to recent vocal cord surgery.

"Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal" takes place tomorrow at 7:00 PM at Texas A&M University's Reed Arena and will feature performances by the Gatlins, Alabama, Lee Greenwood, Sam Moore, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Yolanda Adams, Cassadee Pope, and Stephanie Quayle.

The One America Appeal was launched on September 7 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.

"The 43rd President and I, and our distinguished colleagues in this 'One America Appeal,' are very grateful to these wonderful performers — some of them old friends, some of them new — for giving their time and talent to help the urgent cause of hurricane recovery in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean," said President Bush 41. "It's important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we’re with them for the long haul."

A special restricted account has been established through the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation to collect and distribute donations to ensure 100 cents out of every dollar goes to assist hurricane victims. Donations will be distributed to:

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

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

Tomorrow, Larry Gatlin will appear live on the Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends and America's News HQ in support of the event.
