All five former living United States presidents — Republicans George W. Bush and his father George H.W. Bush and Democrats Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter came together for a relief concert to aid victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
The event, “Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal,” was held at Texas A&M, which is also home to the presidential library of George H.W. Bush. The relief concert featured musical guests Sam Moore, Yolanda Evans, Lyle Lovett and a special guest appearance from Lady Gaga.
“Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal,” the singer, 31, tweetedalongside a photo of herself with the men.

She also applauded the One America Appeal organization for “establishing a mental health and trauma recovery fund,” which the singer says she donated to personally.
Although President Donald Trump was not in attendance, he did share a videotaped message calling the former presidents “some of America’s finest public servants,” and adding that “this wonderful effort reminds us that we truly are one nation under God, all unified by our values and devotion to one another.”
