Solange is joining a list of celebrities giving back to Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
The singer announced that she will be performing in Boston on Sept. 28 at the Orpheum Theatre with proceeds from the show going to relief efforts on the ground. She’ll be joined by Sun Ra Arkestra.
The “Cranes in the Sky” singer shared on Instagram, “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!”
Solange joins her sister, Beyoncé, who is currently giving back to their hometown through her foundation, BeyGood. The singer is working with local organizations and has already donated a significant amount to the devastated city.
“My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help,” Beyoncé said in a statement via the Houston Chronicle. “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.”
Solange recently announced a number of October shows and is currently working on a performance art piece, “Scales,” which debuts Oct. 8 in Marfa, Texas.
