Beyoncé, Drake, Miley Cyrus and Others Announce Donations for Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Harvey has wrought devastation in Houston and across southeast Texas, and a number of celebrities have stepped forward to support relief efforts. Leonardo DiCaprio and Sandra Bullock donated $1 million apiece, while on Instagram, Kevin Hart solicited donations from fellow celebrities including the Kardashian family ($500,000), Nicki Minaj ($25,000), Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez ($25,000 apiece), DJ Khaled ($25,000), T.I. ($25,000), and the Chainsmokers ($30,000).

Meanwhile, Houston rapper Bun B and music manager Scooter Braun are planning a televised benefit concert, potentially similar to the One Love Manchester concert Braun helped organize earlier this year. Here are a few more prominent musicians who’ve promised their support:

Beyoncé: Yesterday, Houston native Beyoncé announced her BeyGOOD Foundation would participate in hometown hurricane relief efforts. Today, BeyGOOD launched a donation page on Beyoncé’s website where fans can donate to two local charities, Bread for Life and the Greater Houston Community Foundation.

Solange: Solange’s September 28 concert with the Sun Ra Arkestra in Boston will benefit Hurricane Harvey relief, as will a portion of sales from an October 3 show in New York City. “I’m committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love,” Solange wrote.

I will be doing a special “Orions Rise” show in Boston, and ALL proceeds will go towards Hurricane Harvey Relief. I’m committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love. See you September 28th Boston, I thank you in advance for making this a special meaningful night !
