So maybe only old white English guy performers are willing to donate their time for a cause (remember their nation [United Kingdom] is far more socialistic than ours). The young multi-colored performers are true entrepreneurs (capitalists); they want money to play, because it's about them making as much money as possible.

In fairness, New Jersey natives Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi performed. Also Kanye West and Alicia Keyes.

So your assessment in your commentary above was a bit exaggerated. Yet on the other hand, Springsteen and Bon Jovi aren't the top performers of today either, but they don't go back to the 60's as the Old Men from the British Invasion do.
Why is that a problem? Frankly the best Super Bowl half-time shows, in my opinion, were the Paul McCarthy and the Mick Jagger/Rolling Stones shows. So those old baby-boomers are still out there doing their thing. I think that's quite cool or as we used to say back in the day, groovy.

I think this is a great way to raise revenue for such causes as concerts probably draw people who otherwise wouldn't just send an outright donation.

Mrpizza: I totally agree. Let's face it, there all many Christian relief organizations that are there helping that also need donations: LCS (Lutheran Community Services), UMCOR (a United Methodist relief organization, The Assembly of God has one too, as does the Catholics, and others. Chances are many of the concert-goers haven't or wouldn't give to any of these groups, so yes, this concert gave those folks a "secular" organization they could donate to.
