    All five living former U.S. presidents are bringing their hurricane-relief efforts to the concert stage later this month in Texas.

    Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter banded together to create "One America Appeal" in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and then expanded the fundraising effort to include help for victims of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

    Now, the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation has announced "Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal" concert at Reed Arena at Texas A&M University in College Station on Oct. 21. All ticket sales and other proceeds from the event will go to the "One America Appeal" fund.

    Each of the former presidents is expected to attend the concert.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.
