Texas was devastated when a major cold snap hit the state in mid February. The frigid temperatures from Storm Uri, combined with a lack of electricity and clean water, led to the deaths of at least 57 people, according to the Texas Tribune.
But Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila McConaughey are here to help those impacted by the deadly storm. The Oscar-winning actor announced March 12 that he had put together a benefit concert to help his fellow Texans. The concert, happening Sunday (March 21), will feature performances by Post Malone, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Willie Nelson, Khalid, and many others.
Celebrities making special appearances include Meghan Thee Stallion, the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez, and more.
“Camila and I are presently working with some wonderful organizations on the ground in Texas, but we know that help is going to be needed for a while, and that’s why Camilla, the Just Keep Livin Foundation, and I are putting together a virtual benefit … to directly help the necessary long-term effort to rebuild Texas and take care of those in need,” the actor explained in a YouTube video ahead of the show announcement. “If you’re a have, please help out a have not.”
The show, which will be on McConaughey’s YouTube channel, will feature a donate button, and viewers can also text 20222 to give $10. 100% of the donations raised will go to the Just Keep Living Texas Relief Fund to support short- to long-term needs resulting from the winter storm.
To stream the benefit concert, tune into the actor’s YouTube at 8 p.m. ET. Check out the full lineup below:
