Houston native Beyoncé Knowles has been deeply affected by the hurricane that destroyed much of hometown. In addition to donating through her BeyGood charity and asking the public to support Hurricane Harvey victims, the “No Angel” singer spent quality time with Houston residents along with mother, Tina Knowles, and daughter Blue Ivy.

Now, the Grammy-winning songstress and her hubby, Jay-Z, are teaming up for a huge benefit concert to support victims of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, according to US Weekly.

The night will also mark Bey’s return to the stage since giving birth to three-month-old twins, Rumi and Sir.

The show will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Tuesday, Oct. 17, with several current and alum Roc Nation artists expected to perform.

The 36-year-old also comforted evacuees who sought refuge in her home church, St. John’s.

“This, today, is a celebration of survival. Y’all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that y’all are safe, that your children are safe. The things that really matter are your health and your children, and your family and your life.”
