R&B singer goes to Houston to help Katrina evacuees

It wasn't for a concert. R&B singer Macy Gray went to Houston specifically to help refugees from the flooding in New Orleans.

"I just really wanted to help out," Gray said after spending Saturday handing out clothes and toiletries in the Astrodome. "I think the most important thing to them is their futures. They are here, and they have gotten out of that disaster but it is, like, now what? Because they can't live like that forever."

"It is crazy when you don't know what is going to happen to you the next day and suddenly that is what their lives are like," she said of the refugees.
