Aside from some technical difficulties, the Shelter from the Storm benefit was a beautifully produced fundraising effort. They managed to strike just the right tone no celebrity vanity here by eliminating introductions and having the artists perform touching pieces of music. I was especially moved by the Foo Fighters' beautiful rendition of CCR's "Born on the Bayou".... Meanwhile, over on BET they went for a more traditional telethon format with big checks and lots of pats on the back and thanking celebs for donating their valuable time. But they did have some truly moving segments about survivors and people searching for their loved ones. Helping people reunite seems like it could be the greatest benefit of all. AC
