Josh Duhamel and Fergie brought the Black Eyed Peas to Minot, North Dakota, in the weekend for a special charity show to raise money for those affected by floods.

Over $1 million was raised at the concert, with proceeds going to the Minot Area Community Foundation Minot Area Recovery Fund. 12,000 people attended the event.

Duhamel and Fergie have publicly asked fans and celebrities to support the Minot area since the flooding began in June. Over 12,000 people were displaced from their homes during the floods, with over 4000 homes damaged – 805 beyond repair.

“I spent the first 22 years of my life in Minot and still have family living there, including two sisters who have been displaced by floodwaters,” said Duhamel. “Minot will always be home to me, and it breaks my heart to see the devastation the city and its residents are going through. People from Minot are strong and come together in a time of need, and I know they’ll get through this. But with everyone’s help, we can make it easier for them to restore their lives and the surrounding Minot area. I can’t express how grateful I am to the Black Eyed Peas for their incredible support.”
