Grammy-Award winning artist and Houston, Texas native is using her platform to help victims affected by Hurricane Harvey. The singer issued an exclusive statement with the Houston Chron about her plans.
"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," she said.
"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."
Tuesday evening, the singer's lifelong pastor, Rudy Rasmus spoke with ET about her additional plans:
"She's starting out with a significant donation, and that donation is getting us to launch out into some areas that help us more effectively impact the communities that have been the most affected," Rasmus tells ET's Kevin Frazier via FaceTime. "She has, over the years, been very generous to our cause, and we continue to work together. She has been a huge benefactor to our efforts here in Houston, Texas."
"She has one huge platform, and information can go out to places that really need to know what's going on in her hometown," he explains. "She has always availed not only her platform, her voice, but also resources -- tangible resources -- to help those most in need in Houston and around."
