NBC Universal aired the program across its networks, and included performances from stars who hail from locations affected by the storm, such as Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen (New Jersey), Billy Joel (Long Island), and Mary J. Blige and Christina Aguilera (New York City).

As the death toll from Sandy climbs higher, some musicians are hoping to lift the spirits of those affected by the superstorm.
Jon Bon Jovi has pulled out of a European press junket in London to return to the States, saying in a statement, "I really need to get back home having spoken to my wife and kids who are stuck in New York, I need to be with my people. Thankfully, my family is safe."

Bruce Springsteen's 62 now. He lost his lead sideman and good friend, Clarence Clemons, last year.
But The Boss can still put on a show.
The veteran rocker gave a free concert in Austin, Texas' 2,700-seat Moody Theater Thursday night for attendees of the South By Southwest music conference, and although he didn't play "Born to Run," it's doubtful anyone came away disappointed.

Bruce Springsteen is ready to wreck.
The Boss is dropping his 17th studio effort, "Wrecking Ball," on March 6, and has pushed out the music video to the album's first single, "We Take Care of Our Own."
If you watch it, you'll notice that Springsteen wants to make sure you catch what he's saying: The lyrics flash across the screen as he sings in the background, "Wherever this flag's flown/we take care of our own/from Chicago to New Orleans, from the muscle to the bone/from the shotgun shack to the Super Dome/There ain't no help, the Calvary stayed home/There ain't no one hearing the bugle blowin'/we take care of our own."

You never know who that guy playing music on the sidewalk might be! Bruce Springsteen has been spotted busking in Boston, reports the Boston Globe.
It seems that Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa were dropping their son off at Boston College last week. While in town, they dropped by the Public Gardens on Thursday and listened to street musician David Gonzalez play the Spanish guitar.
The couple quickly left after attracting attention, but returned to hear more.
