VIDEO: Bruce Springsteen performs on Hurricane Sandy telethon

New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen was one of several artists to participate in a telethon to raise funds to assist relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Friday’s NBC broadcast of "Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together" was hosted by Matt Lauer, and featured performances by Springsteen, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera and Sting, and appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and NBC News’ Brian Williams.

Bruce first appeared during an all-star lineup that included Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Joel and Fallon, as the group performed “Under The Boardwalk.”

Springsteen and the E Street Band closed out the hour-long broadcast with “Land Of Hope And Dreams.”

Money collected will be donated to the American Red Cross relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy.

The American Red Cross response to Sandy is very large and will be very costly, affecting a massive area spanning much of the eastern half of the country. Financial donations help the American Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy.

To donate, people can visit, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
