Bun B and Scooter Braun are setting up a Houston telethon in September.
Sources say the telethon is scheduled for September 12th and that they've gotten commitments from major television stations to air it during prime time. Though nothing has been publicly confirmed, Jamie Foxx took to Instagram yesterday (Wednesday) to say that he will be part of a telethon on that date.
He said, "We have a telethon we're doing. We’ll give you more details, where we can raise as much money as we can for everybody down there -- Houston, Beaumont, all those different places. We’re here for you.” Other stars expected to take part include Reese Witherspoon, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan and Hilary Duff.
The show is expected to air for one hour on at least four major networks.
