Harrah's Entertainment Artists Rally Together (H.E.A.R.T.) Concert (USA)

On Monday, February 20, 2006, Celine Dion took part in the "Harrah's Entertainment Artists Rally Together" (H.E.A.R.T.) benefit concert at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The sold-out show, also featuring singer Elton John and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, raised USD 2.1M for about 9,400 hurricane-affected employees of Caesars' parent company, Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. Heavy damage from Hurricane Katrina caused the closure of Harrah's resorts in Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi and New Orleans, Louisiana and Hurricane Rita closed Harrah's Lake Charles in Louisiana.

Jerry Seinfeld opened the evening's festivities at 8pm with a solid 30-minute set of stand-up comedy. He was followed in by Celine Dion, who gave a heart-stopping performance. Elton John -- the last performer of the evening – had the house rocking with a selection of his greatest hits. Celine and Elton ended the evening by bringing the crowd to its feet with a powerful duet of Saturday night's alright. Celine and Elton also performed together Sorry seems to be the hardest word.
