Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Solange and Tina Knowles Collaborate with Essence for ‘Love On Louisiana’ Benefit
Essence just announced they’re collaborating with Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Solange and Tina Knowles for Love On Louisiana: An Essence Hometown Heroes Tribute to help raise $1 million for families that were affected by this summer’s deadly floods in Louisiana.
The dinner and awards ceremony will take place on Nov. 20, 2016 at the Raising Cane’s River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Beyoncé’s charity BeyGood, along with the Knowles family and Rowland, will support the magazine to ensure the event goes off without a hitch.
“Louisiana is a special place in my family’s history and we are committed as a family to never forget the city and the people of Baton Rouge,” Tina said in a statement released by Essence. “It breaks my heart to see the unimaginable disaster and destruction caused by the flooding and we will stand and support every effort in place to help the people most affected.”
“We have continued to witness firsthand the strength of our long-term partners in Louisiana in the aftermath of natural disasters, and it is with great pride that we are partnering with Ms. Tina, Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly and BeyGOOD to harness the resources of our collective networks and join the community in rebuilding,” added Essence President Michelle Ebanks.
