The Unapologetic singer has donated 1,000 sleeping bags to victims of the storm and she plans to turn a planned listening party into a benefit concert at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York City in order collect more items for those in need.
“The price of admission to the otherwise free event is something to help the victims,” reports the New York Daily News.
The event, titled “Rihanna & Friends,” will run from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9.
“It’s really difficult to see something so tragic going on and not be able to do anything about it,” she said in a recent interview. “There’s nothing you can control, it’s Mother Nature. It’s really sad what happened here.”
