The Voice couldn’t get any more cutthroat this season. Blake Shelton’s currently leading the pack with three artists still remaining on his team, but Wednesday night, he took some time away from the competition to help those in need.

Shelton was so moved by last week’s tragic tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, he organized Healing in the Heartland, a benefit concert to raise money for victims.

The country music superstar invited a bunch of his friends to join him for the live TV special, including fellow coach Usher.

The unlikely duo closed out the show with an emotional rendition of Michael Buble’s “Home.”

Tickets for Healing in the Heartland sold out in five minutes, according to NBC. The benefit concert also included performances by Reba McEntire, Shelton’s wife Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.

The event raised funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. If you would like to help, call 1-800-890-4999, or text REBUILD to 52000 to make a $10 donation.
