Blake Shelton was born in Ada, Okla. He has also become one of the biggest names in country music. Now that tragedy has struck close to home for him, he is organizing a benefit for the victims.

There has never been a question about how much Blake loves his home state, and the other night when he had to be on The Voice, you could see that his mind was somewhere else. That place was Moore, Okla.

After The Voice was over on Tuesday, he told CNN:

We are actually putting together a fund-raiser right now with NBC. We’ll have more details within the next 24 hours, but definitely something with NBC that is going to happen real fast, and hopefully raise a lot of money.

One of Blake’s fellow coaches on The Voice also hopes to be a part of the benefit concert. Usher mentioned that he too had family close to the destruction.

I have family in Oklahoma City,” he said. “My little sister, Ashira — her family is OK. Unfortunately, that is something that you can’t — all you can do is put your best efforts forward, just let those who have been a part of this tragic reality, this natural disaster, know that we are thinking about them and care about them. I think that is 100 percent the effort.
