On Sunday, May 1, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and several City Council members presented Megan Thee Stallion, the Bayou-City-born, three-time Grammy-winning recording artist, songwriter, and philanthropist, with a proclamation and a key to the city.

Turner proclaimed Monday, May 2 as "Megan Thee Stallion Day," a date that coincides with her grandmother and mother's birthday. Turner says he selected the Texas Southern University graduate and entertainer to recognize her philanthropic contributions.

"Megan Thee Stallion has an extraordinary entertainment career, but we wanted to honor her for what she does offstage to lift people's lives in underserved communities," Turner said. "She assisted people after the 2021 winter storm, during the pandemic, and helped those struggling with homelessness. I look forward to watching her grow as an artist and humanitarian."
