Usually the judges of NBC’s “The Voice” are fierce competitors, but last night two of them came together for a good cause. Just like Blake Shelton promised, the benefit concert to help those affected by the tornado in Oklahoma came together quickly. Last night, Shelton and fellow judge Usher hit the “Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert”stage.
Usher tweeted a photo from the rehearsal with the hashtag #HealOK:

The two judges were joined by other big-name performers, including Shelton’s wife, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Reba McEntire and Vince Gill. Lambert actually broke down in tears while performing “The House That Built Me” because she was so emotional. The benefit concert was broadcast live from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, but in case you missed it, you can catch the full show online.
The event raised funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. For more information on how you can help those affected by the tornado, check out the action widgets below.
