Houston native James Fortune is seeing firsthand the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. He and his family are fine but he’s quick to tell you that there are so many that have lost everything. So this weekend, he’s having a concert right here in Detroit to aid Habitat for Humanity Houston in their rebuilding effort. James reminds us that this will not be a sprint but a marathon effort.
