Over the weekend, the 36-year-old pop star visited St. Johns United Methodist Church, which just so happens to be the same church she attended as a child, to greet survivors, serve food and offer some touching words. "This today is a celebration of survival," she said in her speech as per E! News. "Y'all are my family. Houston is my home, and I thank God that y'all are safe, that your children are safe. What really matters is your family, your health, your children, and your life, and I just want to say I love you."
Additional folks in attendance included Blue Ivy, Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams, Beyoncé's mother, Tina Lawson; and other members from her BeyGood charity team. See photos from the affair below!
Expect to see Bey continue her initiative to help those impacted by the devastating effects of Harvey in an upcoming hour-long telethon called Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief. Alongside names like Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts, George Clooney and others, the pop titan will urge viewers to donate during the broadcast, which is scheduled to air September 12 at 8 PM ET across ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and other networks.
For information on how you can help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, head over to the official website for the American Red Cross or text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
