Taylor Swift Gives $500,000 to Flood Relief

Country singer Taylor Swift has donated $500,000 to help victims of Nashville flooding. Taylor calls Nashville her home and got her start in music there.

"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."

Pop star Ke$ha, also from Nashville, is also chipping in, and is set to perform at a flood benefit concert on June 16. It's so nice to see stars so willing to help in times of crisis!
