Yoko Ono was an exclusive guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and she spoke passionately about the people of Japan and what people around the world can do to help. "We have to start bringing out...the energy, resilience and wisdom that we have," she told Piers Morgan. "This country is going to, for the first time, become the kind of country that the whole world would envy."
Ono suggested Americans give to the Red Cross. As for what will come next in the country, Ono said: "With a big challenge I'm sure that some big, big beautiful result will happen."
We're live tonight covering the developing and tragic situation in Japan. Piers Morgan will conduct two exclusive interviews. One, with Yoko Ono, who has not yet spoken publicly since the natural disaster. Piers also interviews Red Cross CEO Gail McGovern who will give an update on the latest relief efforts.
CNN is covering the story from all angles, and tonight, Piers talks to Anderson Cooper, Soledad O'Brien and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, all reporting from Japan. The nuclear dangers with Matthew Wald, political implications with Bill Richardson, FEMA director Craig Fugate and much more. Live at 9pmET.
On Friday's "Piers Morgan Tonight," a survivor of the 2004 tsunami joined Piers Morgan for a personal discussion. Nate Berkus, host of "The Nate Berkus Show," lost his partner in the tragedy as well. "It's unbelievably disorienting," said Berkus. "You just don't even know when you're in the thick of it what could possibly be happening. My heart goes out to everybody...There are psychological ramifications and emotional ramifications that are going to last for years."
The first phone call Berkus made upon surviving was to CNN, and Piers replayed the audio of that phone call at the beginning of the interview. Here was Berkus' reaction: FULL POST
