The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation announced plans for the "Deep from the Heart: The One American Appeal" concert Wednesday.

Earlier on Saturday, President Donald Trump recorded a video greeting that avoids his past criticism of the former presidents and called them "some of America's finest public servants".

Former President Obama said he "could not be prouder" of Americans for their response to help victims of the recent hurricanes that struck the U.S.

An appeal to help hurricane victims backed by the five living former presidents has raised $31 million since it began on September 7.

MSRTC finally call-off a five-day strike after HC orders
The MSRTC employees, numbering over one lakh, had been demanding salary in accordance with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The court said the state government can not be a mute spectator to the strike which has affected the transport services badly.

The event will feature country music artists Alabama, the Gatlin Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keene and others.

This marks the second time that the five living former living Presidents gathered.

Concert organizers say the proceeds from the concert will be collected and distributed through various organizations in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The appeal is not the first time former presidents have gathered together for a relief effort after a major natural disaster. George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton raised money together after the 2004 South Asia tsunami and Hurricane Katrina the next year. It was launched last month after Hurricane Harvey battered Texas and expanded when Hurricane Irma hit Florida and Hurricane Maria devastated parts of the Caribbean, together causing several hundred deaths and billions of dollars in damage.
