Pray for Houston.
Drake, Beyonce, Chris Brown and more have all reacted to the devastating floods currently taking place in Houston, Texas.
Hurricane Harvey has reportedly left at least five people dead and many people injured across the Gulf Coast of Texas.
Since the catastrophe, musicians have offered prayers and condolences, with many donated large sums of money to the cause.
“We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused,” said Drake on Instagram.
“I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years."
We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
Chris Brown took to Instagram to reveal he donated $100k to the efforts, while TI has pledged $20k.
A number of other famous faces, including Kevin Hart, are also challenging fellow celebrities to donate as much as they can.
