Web Exclusive: Stars lend voice to Moore Oklahoma victims

Posted: Updated:

(CNN/CBS) - Blake Shelton welcomed a packed crowd to the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City Wednesday night for Healing in the Heartland.  "I'm here with some of my closest friends from Oklahoma and beyond to join in and help with rebuilding and recovery of this land that means so much to me," said Blake Shelton.  Musicians from all genres were on hand to raise money for the nearby communities impacted by this month's tornadoes and lift a few spirits.   Performers said they were happy to lend their voices to the cause.  Proceeds will go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.

  
Neil Patrick Harris will host the 65th primetime Emmy awards. This is the second stint as host for the "How I Met Your Mother" star.  Harris last hosted the show four years ago. The Emmys air on CBS September 22nd. 

Shaquille O'neal is launching a new line of a sodas with partner-- Arizona Beverage Company.
He's calling them  'Shaq Sodas.'  The four flavors are Strawberry Cream, Orange Cream, Vanilla Cream and Blueberry Cream.  50 million of the Shaq soda cans will hit the market sometime in June.  It is reported that Shaq will get a small percentage of sales.

There were no home runs, but lots of action at the ballpark at Arlington.  A severe thunderstorm postponed the Texas Rangers - Arizona Diamondbacks game and you can see why.  Gusty winds nearly blew the tarp right off the field!  The grounds crew managed to get things under control.  No one was hurt.  The game will be made up later this season.
