Beyoncé is giving back to her hometown of Houston during the area’s time of need as Hurricane Harvey drops record-breaking amounts of rain and flooding.

The singer released a statement to the Houston Chronicle, saying, “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.”


Beyoncé added, “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.”

Beyoncé’s organization has donated millions to local organizations in Houston in the past, but also most recently set up scholarship funds for students studying creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies at Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
