The host also shared that his program will be donating $1 million to the Houston Flood Relief Fund set up by football star J.J. Watt. Fallon’s brief remark was followed by the heartwarming rendition of the song, “Lean on Me” performed by Houston Gospel Choir and led by White, who sung solo at the start of the song.

Fallon said that the song by White and company is “dedicated to all the heroes in Houston who did whatever they could to help.”

After the video went viral, White shared on a Facebook post that she had no clue their performance meant to encourage the evacuees was being recorded but concluded later on that it was part of God’s plan.
