PRNewsfoto/Live Nation EntertainmentHours after Janet Jackson Saturday visited people affected by Hurricane Harvey, the singer apparently broke down into tears while performing onstage.

The singer, who is on her State of the World tour, which stopped by Houston’s Toyota Center Saturday night, was singing her hit song “What About” from her 1997 album, The Velvet Rope.

As dancers behind her had just re-enacted a couple fighting, a fan’s Periscope video shows Jackson’s pausing and shielding her eyes as she breaks down into tears, later clutching her knees.

“This is me,” she said as fans encouraged her from the audience with cheers and applause.

Her rep did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

Earlier Saturday, Janet was seen with her brother Randy and Houston mayor Sylvester Turner in Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center and NRG stadium, meeting with evacuees to offer words of support. The Jackson family also was accompanied by dancers and band members on the singer’s tour.

The singer also dedicated the night’s performance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and encouraged fans to support local charities to support relief efforts. The proceeds from her Saturday night performance will also be donated to charity, according to a news release.
