Ukraine meet You Tube.
Next Saturday March 26th, dozens of stars will participate in a 10 hour telethon to benefit the war torn country.
“Stars in the House for Ukraine” will air live on Saturday, March 26th from 12:00pm ET – 10:00pm ET. It can be viewed and listened to on starsinthehouse.com, Stars In The House YouTube channel as well as SiriusXM Stars109.
Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley will host the telethon to raise money and awareness for those affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine. Donations of the event will benefit the International Rescue Committee and their humanitarian efforts for those affected by the war in Ukraine.
The star-studded lineup of guests include original SCTV cast members Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin, plus Steve Martin, Annette Bening, Billy Porter, Audra McDonald, Cynthia Nixon, Laurie Metcalf, Norman Lear, and a knock out list of Broadway and TV stars including Tituss Burgess, Kristin Chenoweth, David Hyde Pierce, Kelli O’Hara, Robin de Jesús, Donna Murphy, Annaleigh Ashford, Jessie Mueller, Josh Groban, Judith Light, John Stamos, Lindsay Mendez, Laura Benanti, Norman Lear, Betty Buckley, Rosie Perez, Mandy Patinkin and Kathryn Grody, Rachel Bloom, and Patrick Wilson.
In addition to the celebrity guests singing and reading donations, the event will also feature Ukrainian citizens who will be speaking and performing, including Ukrainian actor Oleg Karpenko, a Ukrainian theatre and film actor who co-starred with President Zelensky in “Servant of The People.”
“For almost 90 years, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has been responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises. In Ukraine and Poland, IRC mobilized quickly to assist the vulnerable and displaced by war that privileges impunity and autocracy over accountability and self-determination,” says David Miliband, President and CEO of IRC. “We are grateful to James, Seth, and everyone who will be joining this special 10-hour Stars in the House marathon to draw attention to the needs of those affected by the war in Ukraine, and to give audiences around the world a way to help.”
