Pals Selena Gomez and Kevin Jonas were just two of the many celebrities hanging out at the phone back during last night’s (January 22) Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief telethon in Los Angeles.
Selena, 17, revealed to MTV that there was no way she could say no to participating. She shared, ” I thought that it was very important to be here tonight, because I feel like we are very fortunate, and I’ve lived a blessed life. Being able to help and give back as much as I can is a good feeling in general, but what happened to the people in Haiti is absolutely devastating. It’s so empowering to see how many people are coming together to help. And I’m just here. I’m just one of those people wanting to get the word out and help the people of Haiti.”
Kevin echoed her statement, saying, “Answering phones and being able to talk to people all around the country has been an amazing opportunity. When we can get together as a group of people that may have a wider reach than just a couple of people, it works really well. It’s an honor to be in the room.”
