Beyoncé returned to her hometown of Houston to show support to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The powerful hurricane, which was a Category-4 storm when it hit Texas Aug. 25, caused historic devastation and widespread flooding. It also prompted over one million people to evacuate their homes in the state and was responsible for 39 deaths.
The singer visited her childhood church, St. Johns Church, in Houston, Texas, Friday. She was accompanied by her mother Tina Knowles Lawson, daughter Blue Ivy, and former Destiny’s Child band mate Michelle Williams, according to photos posted on social media.

“This today is a celebration of survival,” Bey told the congregation while standing next to her mother, according to one fan site’s video. “Y’all are my family. Houston is my home,” she continued. “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 you got it.”
