Oct. 21 (UPI) -- All five living former U.S. presidents are attending a concert Saturday night at Texas A&M University to benefit victims of recent hurricanes.

The One America Appeal was launched in September by George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation. Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama joined the effort.

The concert, in College Station, Texas, features country music performers including Alabama, Lyle Lovett and Lee Greenwood. The show starts at 8 p.m. ET.

The money raised will support recovery from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Donate here.

President Donald Trump recorded a video message for the event.

The foundation will collect and distribute the donations to the Houston Harvey Relief Fund, focusing on the greater Houston region; Rebuild Texas Fund, assisting hurricane-ravaged communities across the state; the Florida Disaster Fund; Juntos y Unidos Por Puerto Rico, launched by Beatriz Rossello and a private sector coalition; and the Fund for the Virgin Islands.

About 80 percent of Puerto Ricans are without power, with water and food in scarce supply.
