President George H.W. Bush did not address the crowd but smiled and waved from the stage. "We came together. We helped one another and through it all we remained resilient", Trump said in a video message played during the "Deep From The Heart, The One America Appeal" concert at Texas A&M University's Reed Arena.

The concert, which was streamed live on the One America Appeal website, featured performances by country band Alabama, Grammy-winning "Soul Man" singer Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams as well as Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.

Dubbed "Deep in the Heart" in a dual reference to the song "Deep in the Heart of Texas" and the idea that Americans' compassion for victims runs deep, the concert is taking place at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
