On Friday Beyoncé went to St. John's Church in her hometown of Houston, Texas to give an emotional speech to the community, showing her support and love following Hurricane Harvey's devastating damage to the major city. The category 4 hurricane displaced thousands, and the effects of the flood damage will take the city years to repair.
"This today is a celebration of survival," Beyoncé says in a video circulating Twitter. "Y'all are my family. Houston is my home, and I thank God that y'all are safe, that your children are safe. The thing that really matters is your health and your children and your family and your life, and I just want to say that I love you."
Through her organization BeyGOOD, the superstar told the Houston Chronicle that they plan to help "as many as we can." "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," she told them. Photos of Beyoncé in Houston with Blue Ivy and her mother Tina Lawson can be seen below.
