After the catastrophic storm hit south Texas this weekend, the Houston-born singer said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle that she’s working on getting aid to those in need:
“My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help. I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
BeyGOOD, which debuted during her 2013 Mrs. Carter tour, previously announced an initiative to get clean water to people in Burundi and has awarded scholarships to young women entering college. BeyGOOD has also done work with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
J.J. Watt, Kevin Hart, and Drake have also vowed to help Houston in various ways. Hart started a relief challenge on social media, vowing to donate $25,000 to the Red Cross and urging his celebrity friends to do the same. Watt’s fundraiser has reportedly surpassed $1 million.
