Faith Hill Lifted Spirit of Hurricane Katrina's Victims


Faith Hill


'Yes, there are places that are still rebuilding and are not quite back yet, but when they do come back, they'll come back better,' she said at the charity concert.

Faith Hill reassured victims of 2005's Hurricane Katrina they have not been forgotten during a free concert to raise funds for New Orleans. Many were left dead and thousands of people made homeless after a massive storm wreaked havoc across Louisiana.

Singer Hill marked five years since the storm on Tuesday, August 24 by performing at the Mahalia Jackson Theater in New Orleans, which was destroyed during the hurricane and is still undergoing restoration. Hill is pleased she can give back to those affected by the tragedy, because she feels it's her "responsibility" to help however she can.

And she's adamant the area will be able to bounce back once tourism begins to flourish again. Speaking onstage at the event, she said, "We are here for you still and you are not forgotten. I feel like it's my responsibility to give back. When you've been given so much, it's only right that I do what I can to help, if I can..."

"Sometimes, with celebrity, you can make things happen pretty easily. My message is, 'Come to New Orleans and experience this great city.' Yes, there are places that are still rebuilding and are not quite back yet, but when they do come back, they'll come back better."
