Other musicians have taken action to help those affected by the
disaster.

In November,
Metallica donated $100,000 to support the aid effort
, writing
from the band’s All My Hands Foundation page on Facebook: “We
would like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need
and our first responders in any way you can by donating money,
non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies or by giving your
time volunteering or providing temporary housing. Every little bit
helps.”


Stars including Dave Grohl
 and
Lady Gaga
 also helped in the relief effort by providing food
and supplies for both people affected by the blaze and the fire
crews that worked tirelessly to control the fires.

A
number of celebrities lost their homes in the wildfires including
Miley Cyrus and 
Gerard Butler.

Tame
Impala’s
Kevin Parker had to
evacuate the home studio he was recording in
.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Southern California
Disaster Relief Fund, which supports low-income families who were
impacted by the wildfires.
