  • Janet Jackson

However, she doesn't specifically name him in her emotional rendition. After surprising some victims of Hurricane Harvey on Friday (Sept. 8) with a surprise appearance at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Jackson dedicated Saturday's show to those affected by the massive storm. It took the 51-year-old singer a moment to compose herself, with the encouragement of her audience, before saying to the crowd, "this is me".

It marked a rare emotional moment during an otherwise joyful and high-energy show, her second as part of her newly renamed State of the World tour, which began two days prior and followed her maternity leave.

Her upbeat hits are still on the set list, including Billboard Hot 100 #1 tracks such as All For You, Miss You Much and That's The Way Love Goes. Fans got loud as she also performed the newest dance craze the Milly Rock while performing "Nasty" and even mixed in Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" with her own hit "What Have You Done for Me Lately". Jackson will be donating the show's proceeds to local flood relief charities, reported US Weekly. I'm so excited for the State of the World Tour. The singer wrote in the caption, "Hey u guys". We r in rehearsal mode. "And not just visit some of the shelters, we also want to do something special".


Fans of Janet will remember back in July of 2016 when she announced she would be delaying her Unbreakable tour as her and her husband at the time were planning their family.

Jackson split from estranged husband Wissam Al Mana in April, three months after giving birth to their son, Eissa.
