Beyoncé travels to Houston to show support for victims of Hurricane Harvey

The singer paid an emotional visit to her hometown.


Beyoncé has been selflessly giving back to others throughout the duration of her entire career, with 2017 being no different.

Most recently, the beloved singer traveled to her hometown of Houston, TX to show her support for the victims of the severe devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

As previously reported, Bey and her sister, Solange, have both been supporting various charities from the moment the hurricane made landfall. Today (Sept. 8) Beyoncé continued her relief efforts in person, making a pit stop at St. John's Church to share a message of support and solidarity for those impacted by the storm.

"This today is a celebration of survival," Beyoncé said, addressing a crowd of Texans, with her daughter Blue Ivy and mother Tina Knowles by her side. "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."

Earlier in the day, Beyoncé was also joined by Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams, with both ladies helping to serve lunch to flood victims with a team of volunteers.

Take a look at some clips highlighting Beyoncé's charitable and emotional trip back to her hometown below.
