Transcript for Michael Jordan donates $1 million to the Bahamas for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts
We cannot wait. How about some "Pop news," Good morning to you. We'll begin with NBA legend Michael Jordan announcing he's donating a million dollars to help the Bahamas rebuild after hurricane Dorian. Give it up for Michael. The bahamian people are strong and resilient and I hope my donation helps as they work to recover from that catastrophic storm. He plans to research the nonprofits working on relief and recovery and give his funds where the money will, quote, have the most impact. This isn't the first time he's stepped in during a time of need. Jordan also gave a generous donation to help those in north Carolina following hurricane Florence, but he joins several other celebrities who right now are giving their time and their money to help the Bahamas get back on their feet including Bethanny Frankel who has been amazing. She's on the ground helping survivors. Tyler Perry flew his personal plane full of supplies, full of supplies to affected areas. Keep it coming, everybody. Everybody is needed. It's needed. It's needed. Well done. The numbers are devastating. I know. Thank you, Michael. Also in the news, Renee zellweger getting major buzz for her role as Judy Garland in "Judy." Last night the actress received a two-minute standing "O" after a screening. Wow. Amazing. "Variety" reporter Janelle Riley tweeting in part, in 15 years of the festival I have never seen a standing ovation like the one for Renee zellweger. It only stopped because she made us and Renee was over the rainbow, if you will at the response in this video. You can see her wiping back tears as the audience applauds her. She said, please stop. You're ruining my makeup. The movie already receiving glowing reviews. Many believe Renee is on her way to an Oscar nod for the performance. I can't wait to see it. "Judy" hits theaters nationwide September 27th. You got a date. Yes, all right. Then finally in the news, Sarah Jessica parker and Matthew Broderick are heading back to Broadway together. I'm excited about this. Right across the street. The star will star in a revival of "Plaza suite" where they will play a couple. Actually three couples. They will play three different the last time they shared the stage was "How to succeed in business without really trying." Broderick is a stage veteran and won the first of his first two tonys in 1983 for his Broadway debut in Neal Simon's "Brighton beach memoirs" and starred in "Biloxi blues" and perhaps his most memorable performance, any ideas? "The odd couple." Oh, yeah. Remember he starred in "The odd couple." Yeah, so when Simon passed away at the age of 91 broad Rick said frankly he owed his career to the playwright. It begins next year. Congrats to both. Can't wait to see them back together. Lovely couple. That's what you call role play. You didn't get that? Role play. Role play. They play -- okay. How does the cheetah go
