All five of America's living former presidents will take to the stage later this month to help raise money for victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria that ravaged the southern United States and the Caribbean.

Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter will appear together at a hurricane relief concert at the A&M University in Texas on 21 October.

The three Democrats and two Republicans have teamed up for the event, titled 'Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal'.

It will feature music from The Gatlin Brothers, Alabama, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen and Sam Moore.

In a statement, George W. Bush said the members of this most exclusive of clubs were "very grateful to these wonderful performers - some of them old friends, some of them new - for giving their time and talent to help the urgent cause of hurricane recovery in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean."
