Before Janet took the stage, one-minute video introduction opens with the names of black men who were killed by police officers: Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Jonathan Ferrell. This is her eighth concert tour.

Janet Jackson says she is bringing music and more to the people of Houston Friday night.

Yep, as promised in her Twitter video, the singer paid a visit to Houstonians trying to recover from Harvey.

The footage also featured commenting from various broadcasters and TV personalities addressing issues like white supremacy, white privilege, and racial inequality.

Did Janet Jackson just Milly Rock?

The singer went on to belt out hits including Nasty, Alright, Control, When I Think of You, All for You, and Rhythm Nation.

The five-time Grammy victor tweeted on Wednesday that she would be arriving in Houston early on Friday in order to meet with victims of Hurricane Harvey. She gave birth to son Eissa in May, and relocated back to the states from London following her split from billionaire husband, Wisaam Al Mana.

After postponing touring over a year ago to start a family, the singer looked as though she had never been away from the stage while performing at the Cajundome. "Thank you for coming out here to show your support of all us here, Houstonians, who are struggling from this Harvey disaster". "We're going to roll in early because we wanted to visit some of the shelters", she announced.

"We appreciate you. We love you", evacuee Marilynn Staten said.
