Beyonce travels to her hometown of Houston to offer support to victims of Hurricane Harvey
After her hometown was devastated by Hurricane Harvey, Beyoncé has once again proved she is Queen B and met with those who have lost everything in the disaster.
The 36-year-old singer visited victims at St. John’s United Methodist Church, a church she often went to as a child, with Beyhive members sharing her touching and emotional appearance on social media.
Beyoncé said: “This today is a celebration of survival. This church is my home. I was maybe nine or 10-years-old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here and I just want to thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is,” reports People.
Calling the congregation her “family,” Beyoncé added: “Houston is my home. I thank God that you’re safe, your children are safe…I just want to say I love you. I’ve been blessed so that I can bless other people and I ask of God to continue to do that for other people.”

Beyoncé had previously pledged her support to victims of the hurricane in a statement she issued to the Houston Chronicle. “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,” the statement read. “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.”
