London: Singer Leann Rimes and her husband Eddie Cibrian are organising a charity show to raise funds for the victims of tornado disasters.

Tornado disasters hit southern states, including Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, Tuesday, May 24, just two days after a powerful twister claimed more than 120 lives in Joplin, Missouri.

Rimes, who hails from the southern state of Mississippi, decided to take action to raise money to help the survivors, reports contactmusic.com.

"I`m doing a benefit acoustic show in Jacksonville, FL June 5 benefiting the tornado victims of AL. (Alabama) and MO (Missouri). Details to come and Cibrian will be hosting. Lots of fun auction items too," the 28-year-old posted on micro-blogging site twitter.
