I have been a bit disconnected from the rest of the world for a few days, my phone had malfunctioned and my daughter had taken control of every television in my home. I had rose this morning to find that Houston had, indeed, been hit by hurricane Harvey and pretty badly. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to all impacted by this tragedy and I will even be donating funds to assist in aiding those in need. Many celebrities have extended themselves to the residents of Houston and parts of Lousiana via social media see below. . .

Former Destiny’s Child member, Letoya Luckett has instagrammed photos of current conditions, she’s told social media that she still has family and loved ones enduring the effects of the storm and has constantly updated the world on how to assist
