Many celebrities have contributed to the relief efforts including Beyoncé, who was born and raised in Houston.
In addition to headlining a Harvey relief telethon, the Lemonade singer said that she would be "working closely with [her] team at BeyGOOD as well as [her] pastor to implement a plan to help as many as [they] can."
Well on Friday, Beyoncé — along with Tina Knowles, Blue Ivy, and Michelle Williams — visited St. John’s Church in her hometown and delivered a hopeful messages to those affected by Harvey.
She told the crowd:
I just want to say that I’m home. This church is my home. I was maybe 9 or 10 years old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here, and I just want to thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is. This today is a celebration of survival. Y'all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that you're safe, your children are safe. I think what really matters is your health and your children and your family. I just want to say I love you. I’ve been blessed so that I can bless other people, and I ask of God to continue to do that for other people.
