Justin Bieber to Anchor Gulf Coast Telethon

by at . Comments

A night after Justin Bieber entertained fans in his native country of Canada - watch his performance at the MuchMusic Video Awards NOW! - this 16-year old cutie will head down south.

Along with other celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Ryan Seacrest and Chelsea Handler, Bieber will join Larry King for a special telethon this evening. Airing on CNN, the special will benefit citizens left in ruin by the BP oil spill in April.

Titled "Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help," the fundraiser will air at 8 p.m. EST and feature stars live and via satellite.

Also booked for the event: Randy Jackson, Ted Danson, Lenny Kravitz, Jenny McCarthy, Tim McGraw, Alyssa Milano, Robert Redford, Ian Somerhalder, Edward James Olmos, Pete Wentz and many others.

All money raised from the telethon will benefit the United Way, the National Wildlife Federation and the Nature Conservancy. All these organizations are dedicated to helping families and individuals whose lives have been profoundly affected by this man-made disaster.

Said King in a statement: "I understand bureaucracy and that some things take time, but when you're out of work, you don't need help tomorrow, you need help today."
