For nearly 60 years, Labor Day television for millions meant the Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon, hosted for decades by Jerry Lewis. That tradition came to an end after 2014 (with Lewis himself lasting through 2011), but Raycom Media turns the holiday back into a day of giving this year with Louisiana Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Relief.
American Idol judge Randy Jackson and singer/actor Harry Connick Jr, both Lousiana natives, will host the live show from 8 pm to 10 pm ET on Monday. Performers are scheduled to include Better Than Ezra. Sonny Landreth, Chris Thomas King, MacKenzie Bourg, Luther Kent and Rockin’ Dopsie.
Louisiana Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Relief, in support of the American Red Cross’s Louisiana Flood Relief fund, will emanate from Baton Rouge’s River Center Theater.
