Kelly Price has had an extraordinary and long career, from being called "Little Mahalia" at age 9 to singing with everyone from Aretha Franklin to Notorious B.I.G. and releasing a pair of platinum-selling albums.

This week, she's putting on a show to benefit victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

“Watching the horror of the aftermath of the storm, I became obsessed with watching what was happening,” Price tells "City Lights" host Lois Reitzes. “I was asking God, ‘What can I do?’ I don’t have a million dollars to give. And what I heard inside of me is, ‘Use what I gave you.’ And what he gave me is a voice. He gave me a platform and an audience and incredibly talented friends who also do what I do.”

Price and her business partner Angela McCoy arranged the Hurricane Harvey Benefit Relief Concert at City Winery, featuring Price alongside rappers Slick Rick, Trina and Pastor Troy as well as Case, 112, LeAndria Johnson, Big Freedia and many more.

Proceeds are going to two families from Texas and Georgia who have lost everything to the recent hurricanes.

The Hurricane Harvey Benefit takes place at City Winery on Wednesday.
