Finally. Houston native Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé fulfilled the photographic promise of an Instagram image took last year and worked out a remix to Stallion’s “Savage.” The song’s release midday on April 28 became a trending topic on social media. But the highlight for Houston was not only their two stars collaborating on a song, but announcing the proceeds will go to a local non profit who is helping city residents weather the pandemic via a drive-through help line.
It seems that plenty of cash will soon be headed to Bread of Life Inc., as part of a longstanding partnership between Beyoncé and the non profit that has worked for years along side the star to feed those in need. Now? They are working together to help those negatively impacted by the coronavirus. In the past, Bread of Life and Beyoncé worked together to help people impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Katrina. In addition to the drive-through. Bread of Life is delivering food to senior citizens and expanding its services to include a telehealth program for high risk-individuals.
Megan, also a Texas Southern University student, has recently worked with Amazon
to send supplies to a Houston nursing home.
At the same time, after Megan posted on Instagram that “It’s Megan and Beyoncé Day,” Houston’s mayor Sylvester Turner responded. By that evening, he said both entertainers would get official days in the city of Houston.
In a tweet, Turner announced the news: “Because of both artists’ contributions to uplifting our communities, holding down #HTown, and for helping us remain #HoustonStrong, our city will present both artists with their own respective days.”
