Blake Shelton has organized and will headline a benefit concert for the victims of the Tornado that struck the Oklahoma City area earlier this week.

The Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert will be held at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on May 29 and be televised live at 9 p.m. (ET) on NBC. It will also air on NBCUniversal cable nets Style, G4, Bravo, E! as well as CMT on a live or delayed basis.

Miranda Lambert, Reba and Vince Gill will also perform, with additional guests expected to be announced shortly. The event will raise funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.

"Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy," said Shelton. "This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero."

R.A. Clark is executive producer.  Rob Paine is supervising producer and Gregg Gelfand is director. Gene Pack is the writer for the special.
