Beyoncé, Miss Tina, and Michelle Williams Arrive in Houston & Meet with Hurricane Harvey Victims
“Y’all are my family and Houston is my home”
Those were the words uttered by Beyonce today, as she rallied her friends and family together to support those displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Mrs Carter was speaking at an event to aid the recovery effort. The 36-year-old singer arrived at St. Johns Church in Houston, Texas, on Friday, with her daughter, Blue Ivy, to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
She was joined by mother Tina Knowles-Lawson and Destiny’s Child sister Michelle Williams; both of whom were hands on with their help too. It sees Bey hold true to her promise of actioning a plan to assist those displaced by the disaster. See more from the BeyGOOD collective below…
ET spoke with Rasmus last week, who revealed that the superstar had already made a significant impact on Hurricane Harvey relief. “She’s starting out with a significant donation, and that donation is getting us to launch out into some areas that help us more effectively impact the communities that have been the most affected,” he shared. “She has, over the years, been very generous to our cause, and we continue to work together. She has been a huge benefactor to our efforts here in Houston, Texas.”
“I just wanna say that I’m home,” she said. “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 wanna 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. Ya’ll are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that you’re safe, your children are safe. I think that really matters is your health and your children and your family. I just wanna 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.” ~ Beyonce
The group also fed those in shelters too…
“Tina and Michelle are serving food! They’re greeting everyone, making them all feel special,” Houston resident Craig Zeno tells ET exclusively, adding that the pair are telling victims to “continue to be strong.”
