Like we’ve seen before, celebrities, musicians, artists, and other notables are all coming together for a one-night telethon to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Titled “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together”, the one-hour telethon will be held at NBC’s Rockefeller Plaza studios and hosted by Matt Lauer. Musicians scheduled to perform on include Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting and Christina Aguilera; Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC’s “Late Night,” and Brian Williams, the anchor of “NBC Nightly News,” will also appear.

A similar benefit organized by NBC after Hurricane Katrina helped raise more than $50M for the American Red Cross.

This year’s telethon will be broadcast across all of NBCUniversal — including NBC, Bravo, CNBC, E!, G4, MSNBC, Style, Syfy and USA. It will also be live streamed on NBC.com. It will be broadcast live from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time for the East Coast and on a tape delay for the West Coast.

At a concert Wednesday evening, Bruce Springsteen spoke out the devastated Jersey Shore and his passionate commitment to the area’s rebuilding efforts.

“We wish you a happy Halloween, but we are a rock ‘n’ roll band from the Jersey Shore, and tonight we carry a lot of sadness in our hearts,” said Springsteen at one point, according to fan site Backstreets. “This was originally a song about my adopted hometown struggling to get on its feet — it struggled for 25 years, a quarter century, while we watched for Asbury to come back. And we are very proud to say over the past decade, it has risen up and flourished in a way I wasn’t ever sure I’d see in my lifetime. And it will do so again!”
