The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Maria is becoming more extensive as the days go by, prompting several famous faces to dedicate their money, talent and time to its victims.
Following the hugely successful Hand to Hand telethon, singer Kelly Price held her own benefit concert for two selected families that have been impacted this storm season.
The event hosted by Eva Marcille and Ed Lover donated all proceeds, including ticket sales, wine sales, a silent auction, and physical donations to recover the lives of the families, according to TheJasmineBrand.
The night included performances from R&B and hip hop favorites such as Donell Jones, Pastor Troy, Mia X, Raheem DeVaughn, Trina, Case, 112, Slick Rick, and of course the “Friend of Mine” singer as well.

Last night my brothers #112 and I had the honor of performing at @mskellyprice charity event in ATL to raise money for those affected by the recent #Hurricanes at the @citywineryatl! It was an amazing night of music for a great cause! Kelly thank you for allowing us to be apart, and for creating an opportunity for us to use our God given gifts to give back in such a major way! #givingback #charity #dosomething #kellyprice photo cred: my manager @charliewood

Price with Slick Rick
This one here… what can I say??? @therulernyc He is quiet strength and he’s solid as a rock! He’s not going say a lot because he’d rather show up and act on it which is exactly what he did last night. He’s legendary not just because of his music but because of everything he does before and after the music happens. Thank you to my brother Rick and my sister Mandy for moving, shaking and switching things around to be here for these families last night. AND he rocked the house! My heart is over joyed!!! #LifeAfterHarvey #LifeAfterIrma #MyGodIsAmazing #TriFectHerEnt #Look2Live
