Recently, celebrities have donated and brought awareness to the victims of Houston’s major flood after Hurricane Harvey. Thousands in the community have been displaced and are in serious need of help. Celebrities from all across the nation have spoken out publicly and encouraged people to donate to the cause as well.
The popular band Coldplay is one who has used their platform to bring attention to people in need following the hurricane. Last Friday the band was scheduled to perform a concert in Houston but canceled it due to the coming storm.
However, on Monday, Coldplay performed a concert in Miami and although they were miles away from Houston they wanted to raise awareness for the victims of tragic flooding in Houston. The band performed a song called “Houston," which spoke of the love they have for the city and for the people experiencing this difficult time.
"This is because we all grew up loving country music, and of course that's kind of what we think of when we go to Texas," Chris Martin, the group’s lead singer, said during the concert.
"So, if you'll bear with us, this is a new song and we'll never play this again. It's a one-off and it's called 'Houston.' We're gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and then we're gonna send it over there to everyone who missed the show [in Houston]," he said.
