Houston, Sep 9 (IANS) Singer Beyonce visited a church here to speak to the gathered survivors of last weeks catastrophic Hurricane Harvey.

Calling the congregation her "family," Beyoncé added: "Houston is my home. I thank God that you're safe, your children are safe...I just want to say I love you.
