Blake Shelton's wife was overcome with emotion while singing "The House That Built Me"
Listen to Miranda Lambert on iHeartRadio
Oklahoma native Blake Shelton is stepping up to help the folks in his home state -- and getting support from family and friends in the process. The country star's wife Miranda Lambert was among the performers on NBC's "Healing in the Heartland" last night. And she received support from the crowd when she was overcome with emotion while singing "The House That Built Me."
Shelton spearheaded the event, and performed twice as well as serving as the host. He opened the show with "God Gave Me You," and teamed up with R&B star Usher on his hit "Home" to close the hour-long broadcast. Reba took the stage to sing "Everyday People," and also gave a shout out in gratitude to the first responders who lead the way following a disaster. Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, and Vince Gill performed as well, along with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, while Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, and Toby Keith were among the celebrities featured in pre-taped appeals for donations.
"Healing in the Heartland" took place at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. Money raised through the show is going to the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
