The only silver lining to Hurricane Sandy's destructive path is watching resilient Americans band together in the wake of unimaginable tragedy.

After Matt Lauer's recent bungling of Olympic coverage and everything Ann Curry, it's good to see him do right by his fans in the Big Apple!

NBCUniversal and its family of networks will broadcast a live benefit concert tonight from 30 Rockafeller Plaza and we hear it was Matt's idea!

One source revealed:

"Matt was on the phone calling Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Sting to ask them to participate in the relief concert he was organizing to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. No one asked Matt to do this, it's something he wanted to do. Matt's family evacuated from their home in the Hamptons before the storm hit, and they are safe. However, Matt knows how lucky he is, and has personal friends that have been devastated by the hurricane."

Wow!! We're sure the citizens of New York are very grateful!

We aren't cynical enough to think Matt did this to regain public favor, though we're sure he won't mind if that's happens too!

Though, as it turns out, he might not have wanted credit in the first place.

The source continued:

"This is a side of Matt that the general public doesn't see, because he just does these sorts of things all the time, with no attention or little fanfare… Matt was getting a little resistance from the honchos at the network about airing a concert so soon after the storm, and on a Friday night. So Matt personally called Brian and made his case for the special, and the celebs he has lined up for it. Brian gave the green light to air the concert on Friday night, and Matt was very grateful. Matt wasn't going to take no for an answer."

Well done, sir. You're one step closer to removing your name from America's poop list!

Now all you need to do is get down on your knees during an upcoming episode of TODAY, look into the camera, and beg Ann to reclaim her spot on the morning show! LOLz!!

Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together features local legends including Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, and Christina Aguilera.

It's for a good cause so make sure and check it out tonight at 8pm EST!

    I have to respect and admire him for this. Selflessness suits him, if he keeps it up with charitable acts he will improve his public image and win his fans back.

    Her condition is that she will get paid in doughnuts.

    We will never forget what he did to Ann Curry, and this will not make us forget it. That new girl is awkward and unwatchable.

    Before all you people start lauding him for his "generosity" remember this: They are pulling resources out of the relief effort to put on this shindig. They need extra energy, electricity and other resources to put on a television show. They are bringing in generators for this event. Meanwhile Staten Island is without electricity or food or gasoline. They could have done this event in California but Matt Lauer lives in NYC so they are going to inconvenience everyone for this man. This whole event is pitiful.

    Re: The Perez Hater – Still she has more money than you can think of, has more men than you can think of, has more fame than you can think of, and has more talent than you can even dream of. Nice try! Calling her fat is getting ridiculously OLD.

    Re: abdullh – What in the world are you talking about, and your comments are not relevant to the story.
    Perez, please bring back the Flag button like I asked you in an email two weeks ago, you have done a pretty good job so far about keeping scammers off your site, but starting today they are starting to creep their way back in. Thanks for your consideration.

    Nice gesture, however, it still does not compensate for your past
    misdeeds, especially humiliating a child of God! No matter what
    you do or try to do, w/never compensate until you make the wrong
    right! A telethon may have been a nice gesture but it's still about you –
    as host or w/an attitude of "I did this!" You should've invited the runners
    from the cancelled marathon to be the audience! Let's see if you can
    make the wrong right on national TV, which w/definitely get you back
    on track; until then no matter what good u attempt to do, you w/continue
    to be marred!
