Jamie Foxx to host celebrity telethon to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief

The actor, who was born in Terrell, Tex., announced that he’s hosting a telethon next month to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Foxx is working with Houston rapper Bun B and music manager Scooter Braun, who produced Ariana Grande’s One Love show in Manchester, according to the Associated Press.

The one-hour show will be hosted simultaneously in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville and will be aired by all major networks, according to TMZ.

Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton will reportedly host the telethon in Nashville, while Foxx and Hilary Duff will take over in Los Angeles.

Michael Strahan is reportedly hosting from New York, and organizers are trying to enlist Kelly Rowland and Jim Parsons, who were both born and raised in Houston.
