Beyonce, Solange cancel charity concert

Beyonce and Solange have canceled Tuesday's benefit concert at Houston's House of Blues because of a scheduling conflict, Music World/Columbia Records said.

The one-hour concert Beyonce and Solange: Hope for the Holidays was originally scheduled to tape Tuesday and air on Fuse Dec. 21.

The show, which was to have starred the singing Knowles sisters, who hail from Houston, was intended to benefit the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike through the Survivor Foundation, a Knowles family charity helping people in need.

Beyonce and Solange regret the cancellation of their Houston-area holiday concert and urge their fans to support the efforts of The Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund and the Survivor Foundation, the record label said in a statement.
