Amongst all this tragedy, we're always happy to report good news.
And Blake Shelton is trying hard to make good news happen after his home state of Oklahoma was devastated by a tornado.
After already encouraging Red Cross donations by performing a special song with his wife, Miranda Lambert, for the tornado victims on The Voice, Blake isn't done yet because he wants to bring some major relief to those suffering most.
He is teaming up with NBC to put on a relief concert that is hopefully happening next week!
All the details are being worked out so that it can
As an Oklahoma native, Blake Shelton was hit hard by the devastation left in the wake of a deadly tornado that claim the lives of so many and tore through the lives of countless more.
The country crooner and his wife Miranda Lambert performed a touching tribute to remember victims of Monday's disastrous tornado — which smashed through town only 100 miles away from their home.
The married duo sang a touching rendition of Over You— originally written for his late brother— to begin the results show on Tuesday's The Voice in an effort to inspire viewers to donate to the Red Cross and relief efforts for victim's families and those who survived the powerful natural disaster.
In the wake of the storm, Blake will put on a concert with the help of NBC to aid victims.
The singing competition judge explained:
It’s official, folks!!
All four original coaches will be returning to the fifth season of NBC’s The Voice!
In other words, we’ll get to see Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton together again!!
This announcement follows yesterday’s news of Shakira and Usher’s return as well! We didn't have to pick sides after all!
We. Can’t. Wait!!!

Good news, Shakusher shippers — your faves are coming back after all!
But only after a brief sabbatical!
Earlier today Carson Daly confirmed Shakira's departure from The Voice, but it turns out that wasn't the whole juicy story!
The Hips Don't Lie singer will skip out on season five to tend to her beautiful baby, but she is thankfully signed on to return for Season Six!
In fact, the whole
band judge's panel is getting back together!!! Shakira, Usher, Adam Levine, & Blake Shelton are ALL coming back next year!
Reason Why We Love Blake Shelton #1000!!
The seksi country crooner and Voice coach wants the world to know that rumors of his busy schedule causing marital woes with wife Miranda Lambert are BULLSH**!!
In fact, Blake felt so strongly about putting all this nonsense to rest that he took to his Twitter and announced the following:
Well, this is going to hinder plans to get a bun in the oven!
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton have a bumpy ride ahead on the road of love.
While most consider summer to be the appropriate time to relax and bask in the sun, both country crooners are BURIED in work commitments for the next few months and the long bouts apart are notihng new!
Until the fall, they will be separated for AT LEAST 71 days because The Voice judge is scheduled for a hefty 153 commitments until he ends his Ten Times Crazier tour in early October.
Thankfully though, these long bouts spent apart are nothing they haven't endured before.
In fact, the power couple spent only 4 months together in their first year of marriage two years ago.
The coaches on NBC’s The Voice seem like such a happy bunch!
Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher, and Blake Shelton hit up the Grove in Los Angeles yesterday evening to film an appearance for E! News’ Extra. Interviewed by the show’s hosts Mario Lopez and Carson Daly, the coaches and interviewers cracked some jokes and laughed it up while fans gathered around to watch!
Ch-ch-check out the photos (below) for a better look!
We love seeing the four Voice coaches getting along, especially given all the feuds taking place on other singing competition shows — ahem, American Idol. But given Cee Lo Green's return to the show this week, we wonder if and how the tables will turn.
Not that we're worried…
