Victoria White and Marquist Taylor of the Houston Gospel Choir have become an internet sensations after a video of them singing comforting praise songs for Hurricane Harvey victims inside a Texas shelter went viral, garnering over 21 million views on Facebook alone.

Talk show host Jimmy Fallon took notice and invited the duo together with the rest of the gospel choir to perform on the Tonight Show as the program paid tribute to all the men and women who gave their time, effort, and resources to help everyone who has been devastated by the natural disaster.

“Last week we saw the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey on the state of Texas. But in the face of this tragedy, we saw good. We saw communities banding together, neighbors helping neighbors, and strangers helping strangers. So many heroes…,” Fallon said at the start of the show.

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.

“I had no idea this was being recorded, but God had a plan! Not only did He want to Love on those gathered in Lonestar Expo Center who suffered loss at the hands of Hurricane Harvey, but He wanted to love on people across the world who were dealing with their own personal storms!!!” White wrote.
