138

On Friday, the fundraiser one-hour telecast (commercial-free) of the program “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together” brought together artists and exceptional performers from many generations. Matt Lauer, the host, said, “We haven’t seen a storm like this in 100 years.”

Stars of the show included New Jersey natives like Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, along with stars like Sting, Jimmy Fallon, Billy Joel, Mary J. Bilge, Steven Tyler, Jon Stewart, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Bacon, Tina Fey and Christina Aguilera.

Aguilera opened the show on NBC saying, “I was born in Staten Island. Four days ago, Hurricane Sandy came through and devastated it… we will do whatever we can to help, we will not leave anyone behind.” Almost half the deaths from Hurricane Sandy are from the New York City borough.
