(AP) – Organizers of the “Healing in the Heartland” benefit concert for victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes say they’ve raised more than $6 million.
Wednesday’s concert featured Blake Shelton, Usher, Miranda Lambert, Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.
The money was raised through tickets to the concert and through pledges during the broadcast. The money goes directly to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which plans to distribute the funds to agencies helping those affected by the tornadoes.
