While many stars have been donating big bucks to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, Houston native Solange is taking it a step further with a benefit concert.

“I will be doing a special ‘Orion’s Rise’ show in Boston and ALL proceeds will go toward Hurricane Harvey Relief,” the Saint Records label head wrote on Instagram Wednesday, Aug. 30. “I’m committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love.”

The show will take place Thursday, Sept. 28, during her tour stop at the Orpheum Theatre, where she’ll be joined by free-jazz ensemble The Sun Ra Arkestra.
