One Fund concert lacked benefit of TV

“Healing in the Heartland,” a relief benefit concert Wednesday night starring Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, and Blake Shelton, raised more than $6 million to assist Oklahoma tornado victims.

“Boston Strong,” the benefit concert held Thursday night for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, and highlighted by appearances from Aerosmith, the J. Geils Band, New Kids on the Block, James Taylor, and Carole King, is projected to raise around $1.5 million, about one-quarter of the Oklahoma effort.
