Watch Coldplay perform new, one-off song for victims of Hurricane Harvey

Watch Coldplay perform new, one-off song for victims of Hurricane Harvey

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt posted an emotional video to Twitter Sunday night asking for fundraising assistance to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, after the tropical storm pummeled the area.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien called Watt's efforts "incredible".

The Houston Texans star said he was watching Hurricane Harvey coverage on the news, unable to help with recovery when he made a decision to start fundraising for victims.

Many celebrities have donated to help fund relief efforts and now the Hotline Bling hitmaker has announced he will be lending his support with a $200,000 donation.

It has been less than four full days since Watt first asked for donations; as of this writing, just over 100,000 people had contributed. They are hoping to fill semi-trucks with supplies and take them down to Texas this weekend.

The devastation from Hurricane Harvey will be hard to overcome, but the energy industry is making an effort to ease the pain by donating money and time to relief efforts along the Gulf Coast. What's happening right now is my focus very much on getting this directly back to the people as I've said the whole time. Hurricane Harvey dumped over 50 inches of rain in some areas in Texas and trillions and trillions of gallons in rainfall overall, creating massive flooding across the state. As of Thursday, his foundation page directs visitors to his crowdfunding efforts for Harvey victims. Watt announced on Twitter that he had raised the goal of the fundraiser to $5 million. They've been practicing in New Orleans and Dallas, but were heading home Thursday. "Whatever you can do to help these people out". "Since I got here", the Swiss native told the Houston Chronicle, "I really feel like it's home for me. We discussed his plans and I know he is determined to help as many people as he can".

In lieu of the preseason game, the Cowboys say they will practice from 6-7:30pm local time while also conducting a telethon to raise money for flood relief.
