Last week, a bright spot in the devastating storm was a video the emerged from the Lone Star Exposition Center shelter in Conroe. Amidst the shellshocked evacuees, Victoria White and a small circle of singers from Under Over Fellowship offered heartfelt worship through song, alongside pastor Marquist Taylor. Videos of the performance quickly went viral, racking up hundreds of thousands of views.
Now White, Taylor and their Houston gospel choir have brought their joyful tidings to The Tonight Show, performing a gospel version of "Lean on Me" to bring home host Jimmy Fallon's announcement that the show would be donating $1 million to JJ Watt's Harvey relief fund.
"Here's a song dedicated to all the heroes in Houston who did whatever they could to help," said Fallon by way of introduction. The result is, unsurprisingly, giving a lot of Houstonians comfort and uplift. Check it out below.
