Jimmy Fallon Announces $1M Donation to Help Hurricane Harvey Victims
Following the announcement, the Houston Gospel Choir delivered an amazing performance on the show.
Late night comedian Jimmy Fallon returned from the long weekend and Hurricane Harvey’s catastrophic damage with an uplifting announcement: “The Tonight Show” is donating $1 million to J.J. Watt’s relief fund for victims of the storm. At press time, the fund has surpassed $20 million in funds raised.
“Last week we saw the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey on the state of Texas,” Fallon said. “But in the face of this tragedy, we saw good. We saw communities banding together.”
He went on to introduce singers Victoria White and Marquist Taylor, who broke out into an incredible and spontaneous gospel performance inside a Houston-area shelter last week. The two were joined by the Houston Gospel Choir to deliver an inspiring performance of “Lean on Me.” Take a look.
