"I want to send a message to the people of Houston - stay strong and you have to hold onto faith". At this point I'm going to start a real challenge.

Harvey made landfall Friday night as a category 4 hurricane and lingered as a tropical storm over the weekend. "All my love and strength". Hart himself pledged $25,000 to aid victims of the storm.

DJ Khaled and Nicki Minaj joined in with $US25,000 donations. Chris Brown took things to the next level and donated $100,000 to the people of Texas.

Beyoncé's fellow Destiny's Child alumni Kelly Rowland also called for prayers for those suffering. She used the hashtag (hash) HoustonStrong.

"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". The malicious storm has received plenty of national attention that has caused many celebrities and athletes to make sizeable donations to The Red Cross and The Salvation Army for the victims that have been affected.
