“We are going to the do the show in Houston. We’re going to roll in early because we wanted to visit some of the shelters,” she said in the video. “And not just visit some of the shelters, we also want to do something special for the victims. So, we’ll see you Friday!”
The Texas Department of Public Safety says more than 37,000 homes were heavily damaged and nearly 7000 destroyed last week when Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the state. More than 200,000 homes in Texas are still without power.
