OKLAHOMA CITY - Charities providing relief to residents of tornado-ravaged neighborhoods in Moore and Oklahoma City are seeing an infusion of donations from around the country.

Several of those charities also will likely see a boost in giving Wednesday when a several country music stars with Oklahoma ties take to the stage at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtown Oklahoma City for a telethon, "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert," to benefit the United Way of Central Oklahoma.

Performers include Oklahoma native Blake Shelton and his Grammy Award-winning wife, Miranda Lambert, as well as Oklahoma natives Vince Gill and Reba McEntire.

The money raised through the telethon will go directly to the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
