Hurricane Sandy – Coming Together Videos: Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Jon Bon Jovi, Jimmy Fallon, Aerosmith

Earlier this evening NBC aired a one-hour telethon called “Hurricane Sandy – Coming Together” to raise funds for victims of the storm that ravaged the Northeast just days ago. Among the stars that participated were New Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi as well as New Yorkers Billy Joel, Jimmy Fallon, Mary J. Blige and Tina Fey plus many more.

The Today Show’s Matt Lauer hosted the telecast which urged viewers to donate to the Red Cross by visiting RedCross.org, calling 1-800-HELPNOW or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Highlights of the performances included Sting’s gorgeous unplugged version of Message In A Bottle, Steven Tyler teaming up with Springsteen, Fallon and Billy Joel for a fun romp through Under The Boardwalk, a Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway) that hit close to home and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s optimistic Land of Hopes and Dreams.

    I’ve seen the lights go out on Broadway.
    I saw the Empire State laid low.
    The storm went on beyond the Palisades.
    Out in The Rockaways, the oceans overflowed.

    We held a concert out in Brooklyn,
    To watch the island bridges blow.
    We shut our power down.
    Staten Island drowned.
    But we went right on with the show!
