Solange to Perform Hurricane Katrina Benefit Concert
Solange isn't a New Orleans native, but she moved there two years ago and has nothing but love for the city. To commemorate the upcoming 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the singer announced that she has partnered with Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation and will be performing a benefit concert on Saturday at the House of Blues. "Make It Right will be out front sharing stories from the Lower 9th Ward, honoring the rebirth of a vital and vibrant community and celebrating the rebuilding progress across this remarkable city," she wrote on her Instagram.
