Lady Gaga Poses With All the Ex-Presidents at Hurricane Relief Concert

President Donald Trump, in his notable absence, praised the five former USA presidents who spearheaded a hurricane relief concert in a Texas college town Saturday night in a video played at the event. Rough cut (no reporter narration).

Democrats Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and Republicans George H.W. and George W. Bush put aside politics and appeared together for the first time since 2013 at Saturday's concert at Texas A&M University, to raise money for victims of hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico and the US.

His video statement was shown at Saturday's fund-raising concert.

Other musical performers also donating their time and talents to the concert carried live online at included Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keene, Alabama, and Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, and emcee Lee Greenwood.

The appeal had already raised $31 million since it launched September 7, Jim McGrath, spokesman for former President George H.W. Bush told The Associated Press. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter were all in attendance as Gaga performed "Million Reasons", "You And I", and "The Edge Of Glory" at Texas A&M University, and they later posed for a sweet pic with the singer.

"This wonderful effort reminds us that we truly are one nation under God, all unified by our values and our devotion to one another", he continued.

Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast as a Category 4 hurricane on August 25, unleashing historic flooding in Houston and killing more than 80 people.

Having so much ex-presidential power in one place is unusual. While Clinton was talking about the enduring disaster in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the younger Bush leaned over to Obama, making him laugh. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit hurricane victims.
