Blake Shelton raised his "Voice" for Oklahoma's tornado victims this week — and raised a whole bunch of money for them in the process.

"The Voice" coach's benefit concert for the victims of the tornado that devastated Oklahoma earlier this month took in more than $6 million dollars between pledges and ticket sales, the Associated Press reports.

The proceeds go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which will distribute the money to agencies aiding the victims.

Oklahoma native Shelton was joined by his "Voice" cohort Usher, Vince Gill, Miranda Lambert and others at the benefit show, which took place at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena. The concert, dubbed "Healing in the Heartland," was televised live on NBC on Wednesday.
