Kehlani, Jacquees & More Artists Show Support to Louisiana During Hurricane Ida

Artists are sending their prayers and checking in with fans’ loved ones who are currently being impacted by Hurricane Ida in Louisiana.

The Category 4 storm barreling through the Gulf Coast comes at the same time as the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated Louisiana and nearby areas in late August 2005. On Monday (Aug. 30), the powerful tropical storm destroyed the Karnofsky Tailor Shop and Residence, which was once a second home to legendary jazz musician Louis Armstrong. According to the National Park Service, he used to live there with the Karnofskys, a Jewish family whom he worked for on their coal and junk wagons and who lent Armstrong money to buy his first cornet. A mural of fellow cornet player Charles “Buddy” Bolden, who helped pioneer the jazz genre, and his band that used to be on a nearby building no longer remains.

Much of New Orleans has lost power as there were 888,000 power outages on Monday morning, Entergy New Orleans CEO Deanna Rodriguez said in a press conference, according to NBC News. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell also said approximately 200,000 residents chose to stay at home rather than evacuate.

Kehlani and Jacquees sent their prayers to Louisiana, while Questlove asked his followers for updates on how their family members living in the state were doing. Beyoncé‘s BeyGOOD Foundation partnered with celebrity chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen to help provide 100,000 meals to those in Lousiana.

We partnered with @wckitchen during the height of the pandemic & they have not stopped supporting communities where there is food insecurity. They are now providing 100k meals to those in Louisiana affected by Hurricane Ida. Visit https://t.co/D383VhDrm9 to support their efforts. pic.twitter.com/ju7oiZikzh
