Three major celebs have landed in H-Town this weekend, and are coming to the aid of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Bey Hive is buzzing as Houston native Beyoncé has returned home to the Bayou City. Jennifer Garner and Janet Jackson are also in town and assisting relief efforts. 

Friday, Beyoncé, along with her daughter Blue Ivy, stopped by St. Johns Church. Joined by her mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, and her longtime pastor, Rudy Rasmus, she took to the stage telling the crowd, "Y'all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that you're safe, your children are safe. I think that really matters is your health and your children and your family. I just wanna say I love you."

Knowles Lawson posted the video below on Instagram. 

After service, Beyoncé visited the George R. Brown Convention Center where approximately 1,600 evacuees are still currently staying after Hurricane Harvey.

The global sensation's third stop of the day was to serve a meal, along with Knowles Lawson, Houston-based rapper Trae the Truth, and former Destiny's Child bandmate Michelle Williams, to those in need on behalf of her organization BeyGOOD.
