First they headed to their church, St. John’s with their pastor. Beyoncé and her mother sponsored a luncheon for 400 people affected by the hurricane and served lunch to them.

Some photographs even show Beyoncé’s 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter giving a hand.

After the three generations of Knowles women served food, the family held a short program to motivate victims and encourage them to remain hopeful.

In Beyoncé’s speech, she told Houston residents:

Today is a celebration of survival. Y’all are my family, Houston is my home, and I thank God that y’all are safe, that your children are safe, the thing that really matters is your health and your children and your family and your life. I just want to say that I love you.

Her speech was met with cheers and applause. In a very rare move, Beyoncé (who is usually very private) took time to take photographs and videos with fans.

Spirits were definitely raised by the presence and engagement of Beyoncé.

❤️❤️❤️Miss Third Ward. Love her! #HTown #HoUSton #BeyGOOD
