The Houston native Beyoncé returned home with her daughter, Blue Ivy to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey on Friday.
The pair arrived earlier at St. Johns Church inside Houston along her mom Tina.
Beyoncé says, “I just wanna say that I’m home. This church is my home. I was maybe 9 or 10 years old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here and I just wanna thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is. This today is a celebration of survival. Y’all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that you’re safe, your children are safe. I think that really matters is your health and your children and your family. I just wanna 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.”
“Tina and Michelle are serving food!” Houstonian Craig Zeno told ET. “They’re greeting everyone, making them all feel special.”
Tina and the former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams served lunch today to 400 flood victims and they were telling people, “continue to be strong.”
Houston resident Craig said, “Houston is strong! We will rebuild and be even stronger.”
Beyoncé has reportedly already made a sizable donation.
