Superstar Beyonce, known for her philanthropy, has donated $7 million to build a housing project for low-income and homeless families in her hometown, Houston, Texas.

‘She’s an incredible human being. Has an incredible heart and has been extremely helpful in our mission and our ministry here,’ said her local pastor, Rev Rudy Rasmus of St. John’s United Methodist Church, in an interview with KHOU.

‘She has a global platform and is doing sone amazing work and I’m glad she’s a friend of mine.’

He went on to speak of Beyonce, who he has known since she was a child, singing in his church before she was famous.

‘She used to sing right here. I don’t remember the song but I do remember she had long braids, tennis shoes and jeans on. A far cry from what she is today.’
