Solange has announced she'll be adding a particularly spectacular concert to her Orion's Rise performance series. The Houston native is holding a Hurricane Harvey benefit concert on 28 September, to raise funds for the recovery effort.
Solange announced the performance on Instagram, writing, "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 thanked fans in advance for making it a "special meaningful night," emphasising all proceeds from the Orpheum Theatre will go to the cause.
Three hours later Solange announced a second benefit show, this time at New York's Radio City Music Hall. "To honor my hometown neighborhood #thirdward, $3 from every ticket sale will go directly to Hurricane Harvey relief in the area" thanks for all of your support!"
Kevin Hart officially kicked off a slew of donations for the victims of the Houston floodings earlier this week. Since launch, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge has raised over $1 million for the American Red Cross.
