Blake Shelton’s ‘Healing in the Heartland’ Benefit Concert Raises $6 Million for Tornado Relief
Blake Shelton‘s “Healing in the Heartland” benefit concert, which took place on Wednesday (5/29), raised more than $6 million for the United Way of Central Oklahoma. A spokesperson for the organization reported the updated figures to the Associated Press late last week. Funds raised are going directly to the United Way of Central Oklahoma who will then distribute the money to agencies helping with tornado relief efforts.
Shelton organized the concert after a deadly tornado ripped through Moore, Okla. on May 20. Shelton grew up in Ada, Okla., which is about 75 miles south of Moore. Blake and his wife, Miranda Lambert, live about 100 miles from Moore in the town of Tishomingo.
