Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest hurricane in the US in nearly 100 years, killing nearly 2,000 people in the hurricane and the subsequent floods. Property damage was over $100 billion, flooding 80% of the city as well as surrounding parishes. The floods lingered for weeks, displacing nearly all of the city’s residents. It caught international attention as well as garnering support from people from Kanye West to Mike Meyers. 10 years later, performing in the heart of the French Quarter just days before Mardi Gras, these performers chose the words we overcame to show the world that no matter what, strength and togetherness will overcome any hardship.
