Lenny Kravitz is aching for his beloved Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian, asking for prayers and a proposal that can get more Bahamians into the United States. According to CNN, Kravitz supports the bipartisan plan from “members of Congress asking the Trump administration to waive visa requirements.”

“A lot of Bahamians have friends and family, especially in Florida, and I’m sure all over the United States,” said Kravitz, who has a home in the Bahamas. “These people need a place to go.”

He continued, “As you see in the footage, it’s been flattened. These houses are destroyed. There’s no infrastructure. It's very hard to get things in right now, so how are these people going to survive?"

On Monday, the rock star shared on Instagram a terrifying video of someone continuously pleading, “Please pray for us,” as the flooding water swirled around apartment buildings with damaged roofs. “My heart aches for my brothers and sisters going through this storm in the Bahamas,” he wrote in the caption. “I pray that life will be spared and when this clears we are going to do everything we can. #bahamas #hurricanedorian.”
