TOP broadcaster Harry Gration has been lined up as compere for the Huddersfield In Harmony concert.
He'll introduce the bands at the extravaganza on Sunday February 27, in Huddersfield Town Hall.
Harry said: "I'm really excited and honoured to have been asked."
Harry was on holiday in America when the wave struck Asia.
He says: "The news coverage - even in the US, where they are quite insular about world news - made such an impact.
"To imagine the fear that those people went through when they saw the wave coming, and there was nowhere to run ..."
Harry has already taken part in charity golf days to raise cash for victims.
He said: "The concert's a very big thing. More than 1,000 people gathering in that wonderful town hall will be a nice way for the people of Huddersfield to say: "Hey, this is what we're doing to help"."
The Examiner teamed up with six choirs and two brass bands to stage the event.
Now Harry, the popular TV presenter, will be the icing on the cake.
Graham Dawson, the New Mill Male Voice Choir chairman who came up with the original idea for the concert, said: "It's fantastic that Harry's coming.
"Everyone likes him. We're all very excited."
Just 100 tickets are left - they're priced £10 and they're available from the Huddersfield Tourist Information Centre.
Look North anchorman Harry has been a broadcaster for 25 years, fronting many programmes and covering numerous sporting events for the BBC.
He's agreed to cut short a trip to London to front the musical extravaganza.
And of course he's giving up his time, free of charge, to help raise tsunami cash.
Gordon Stewart will be the conductor at the event and Keith Swallow is the accompanist.
The concert will feature the male voice choirs of New Mill, Gledholt and Honley, ladies' choirs from Marsh, Honley and Vocal Expressions, and the renowned Sellers and Hade Edge brass bands.
