Beyoncé is gearing up to provide relief to her hometown devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The tropical storm hit Houston hard this past weekend with intense rain, major flooding, and folks being displaced from their homes.

Beyoncé went on to say, “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.”
