Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Coldplay wrote and performed a new song titled "Houston" following the devastation brought to the city and other parts of Texas by Hurricane Harvey.
The band performed the song Monday during their concert inside Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Coldplay was forced to cancel their scheduled show inside Houston last week due to the storm.
"We all grew up loving country music, and of course that's kind of what we think of when we go to Texas. So if you'll bear with us, this is a new song and we'll never play this again." singer Chris Martin said to the crowd, Billboard reported.
"I'm dreamin' of when I get back to Houston/ I'm dreamin' of that fair and special place/ I'm dreamin' of when Houston has no problems/ In that city where they send you into space/ I'm dreamin' of when I get back to Texas/ Corpus Christie, Harris County, Galveston/ There's a harmony that bonds down there in Houston/ Oh, Houston, you got to keep on keepin' on," read the lyrics, CNN reported.
Recently, a number of celebrities including comedian Kevin Hart and country star Chris Young announced their plans to donate money to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts as they asked others to pledge their support as well.
