Kenny Chesney Using Music to Heal the Virgin Islands After Hurricane Irma

Adjust Comment Print

Kenny Chesney's home on the U.S. Virgin Island of Saint John was wiped out by Hurricane Irma.

"It's just simply gone", the singer said.

Chesney also vowed to rebuild, but not before they help the rest of the islands.

In addition to living in Nashville, Kenny Chesney owns a home in the Virgin Islands. However, the singer did not seem too concerned about his personal property.

The Grammy-nominated artist took to social media to spread awareness of the storm.

"Then, as the day dawns on the islands, we really aware of the seriousness of the situation, writes the artist, visibly stunned".

By bringing her revolutionary suit, Windsor was simply fighting to make her life - all of our (LGBT) lives - ordinary. The women married in Canada when they realized they might not live long enough to see NY legalize same-sex marriage.

"I don't know what to say". "I had 200 miles per hour wind-tested windows throughout my house, and every window in the house just blew out, so these people were really scared", Chesney told HLN (via CMT) regarding the 20 or so people and their pets that he welcomed into his home in St. John, although he wasn't there at the time.

"I'm gonna do everything that I possibly can to try to relieve some stress from people that I've really grown to love over the years, who has meant so much to my life". I have not been to war, but the destruction, the faces of the people of a place that I know by heart and has left me helpless. "I have a feeling once we have our plans in place, they'll be there again". It's given me creativity. And when you look through that window right now, as you can tell, it's just devastation.

The Category 5 hurricane has reached 180 miles per hour winds, and it hit Puerto Rico on Wednesday night after hitting a string of small northern Caribbean islands.

Relief and recovery efforts continue for those affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

Chesney said he will also record several songs that will be used to raise money for hurricane relief. On Monday, Branson announced on the Virgin website that tomorrow he and his team will distribute supplies to those who need it most in conjunction with the local authorities.
