Taylor Swift is showing her support for the victims of the flood in hometown of Nashville, TN. The country singer announced last night that she is donating $500,000 towards relief effort.
"Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly," says Taylor. "Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis."
In addition, pop singer Ke$ha, who is also from Nashville, will be performing a benefit concert on June 16 in her hometown to raise money for the cause. "Nashville helped shape me as an artist and as a person and my love for this city is beyond words," she says. "I will continue to do anything I can to help rebuild this city and support the families and animals who have been affected by this tragedy."
