George H.W. Bush is hosting the 20th birthday of his library later this month, and he’s doing it the right way. On Oct. 21st, the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library will host a huge relief concert to benefit those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

According to Dallas News, all five living former presidents will attend the "Deep From the Heart" show. Those who attend will be able to see performances from Alabama, Lyle Lovett, the Gatlin Brothers, and Robert Earl Keen, as well as the true headliners, former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.

The concert is supported by Texas A&M University and will take place at Reed Arena on the flagship's College Station campus.

"It's important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we're with them for the long haul," George H.W. Bush said.

Originally the concert was planned after Hurricane Harvey, but it has now expanded to include recovery efforts in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The CEO of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation, ensures that 100 cents of every dollar raised through tickets sales for the 'Deep From the Heart' show will go to designated hurricane recovery funds.

 The funds raised will go to Houston Harvey Relief Fund, Rebuild Texas Fund, Florida Disaster Fund, Juntos y Unidos Por Puerto Rico and the Fund for the Virgin Islands.

It's currently unclear whether the current president, Donald Trump, was invited, or if he plans to attend.
