It was an emotional night for many stars who are from Texas. Selena Gomez -- who is from the Dallas-Fort Worth area -- teared up while talking about the Saldivar family, who tragically lost four children and two great-grandparents after their van was swept up by the bayou currents. Sammy Saldivar, who was driving the van, made it out alive.
"Their story affected all who heard it and no matter who we are, the differences we have, suddenly did not seem to matter," she said in a clip that aired during the telethon. "Since that day, we have joined together. Neighbor helping neighbor, without stopping to think about race, religion and anything else."
