ABC NEWS - Fans from all over Texas filed into the Majestic Theater in San Antonio as part of a relief effort called 'Hand in Hand'.

It was a sold out show.

The Majestic Theater was one of four locations for Hand in Hand. Los Angeles, New York, and Nashville also played a part with concerts, celebrities pleas for donations, and those same stars manning phone lines to take donor information.

The telethon raised $14-million in the first hour.

Proceeds from the telethon go to 11 different charities targeting survivors of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
