Black to Host Telethon for Flood Victims in Houston

Clint Black will host the One Houston United Telethon Concert, benefiting victims of last summer’s Tropical Storm Allison, at Enron Field on Jan. 26. Lisa Hartman Black, Rodney Crowell, Destiny’s Child, the Beach Boys, La Mafia and Joe Sample will make special appearances. Black recently visited some of the homes damaged by the storm. “Like a lot of Houstonians, I thought by now the situation had worked itself out,” Black says on his Web site. “People are living in conditions hard to accept. It’s almost impossible to manage our emotions. It’s not just homes but lives that need to be rebuilt.” The telethon will air on several Houston TV stations. 01/17/02
