  • Five former US presidents to appear at hurricane relief┬áconcert

The former presidents formed the organisation "One America" to help with hurricane relief after the storms left devastation and death in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and other parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast and Caribbean.

Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, joined forces to ask individuals and corporations for donations to help put lives back together after one of the worst hurricane seasons on record.

Sitting behind a white grand piano, Gaga performed easily, smiling and chatting with the audience in between songs, according to the Daily Mail.

The last time the five were together was in 2013, when Obama was still in office, at the dedication of George W. Bush's presidential library in Dallas.

"To Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Melania and I want to express our deep gratitude for your tremendous assistance", Trump says in the message.

Following her performance, Gaga again returned to Instagram to share photos from backstage, where she met with the former Presidents.

Vote Gaga 2020? Last night at the One America Appeal benefit concert, Lady Gaga took a moment to pose with all five of the living former USA presidents, and we have to say, she looks rather presidential. Shortly thereafter, all five ex-presidents appeared in a commercial for a fundraising effort known as "One America Appeal".

"With damage estimates from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria topping $300 billion and requiring months and years of rebuilding ahead, we hope this strong start to the One America Appeal is just that - a start", said David Jones, CEO of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation in the press release.

As of Saturday night, the charity had raised US$31 million.

Grammy award victor Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance at the concert that also featured country music band Alabama, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer "Soul Man" Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams and Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.

"Nothing more handsome than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe", the singer captioned the photo.

Meanwhile, actress Scarlett Johansson recently revealed she would also be raising funds for hurricane relief by holding a benefit reading of of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town", featuring the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo.
