Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show just became a part of the growing list of celebrities and productions who have donated to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. On Tuesday night’s episode, the host announced he would be donating $1 million to the fund set up by Houston Texans star, JJ Watts.

Shortly after the announcement, we welcomed Victoria White, Marquist Taylor, and their choir to sing the song, “Lean On Me.”
