Coldplay wrote a song for Houston called “Houston #1” during the tragic flooding that Hurricane Harvey caused.
The band had been scheduled to perform a concert in Houston on Friday, August 25th, but was forced to cancel because of the storm.
The song was performed at their Miami appearance on the 28th and they said it would be a one-shot song, never to be played again.
“I am dreaming of when I get back to Houston,” the song began. Performed in a country-western style, the song mentions Corpus Christie, Galveston and, of course, Harris County and ended with “Yeah, Houston, got to keep on keepin’ on.”
All our thoughts and prayers are with you Houston, so yeah, Houston, got to keep on keepin’ on.Wake up Right! Subscribe to our Morning Briefing and get the news delivered to your inbox before breakfast!
