Tomorrow, NBC Universal’s TV networks — including NBC, USA, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, E!, Style Network, and G4, among others — will air a concert to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. The special will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will feature performances by artists with connections to the disaster or NBC, including New Jersey natives Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, native New Yorker Billy Joel, New York City resident Sting, and Christina Aguilera, a coach on NBC’s The Voice.
Today‘s Matt Lauer, who revealed plans for the commercial-free concert on the air this morning, will host. NBC talent Brian Williams and Jimmy Fallon will appear as well. Proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross, which is providing food, shelter, and other assistance to those affected by the hurricane.
