Lady Gaga has donated $1 million (£626,000) to victims of Hurricane Sandy in her native New York.
The huge donation, which has been made to the American Red Cross, was given on behalf of her and her family.
The singer, whose old neighbourhood was flooded by the superstorm, wrote on her website: “If it wasn’t for NYC… I would not be the woman or artist I am today”.
The Born This Way singer credited the city for building her spirit and then pledged to “help you rebuild yours”.
The singer is currently away from New York as she is in Brazil performing the South American leg of her Born This Way tour.
