Lady Gaga has pledged to give $1million (£746,403.23) to relief efforts following a spate of devastating hurricanes that have hit the US and the Caribbean in recent weeks.
Gaga, 31, revealed that she made the generous donation to help those affected by multiple storms which ripped through Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean islands.
The Million Reasons singer – who was recently forced to cancel the remaining European leg of her Joanne world tour due to health problems – revealed the news on Twitter on Sunday.
‘While praying every day, I’m also donating $1Mil to relief efforts for Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, José, Maria and the Mexico City earthquake,’ read the caption.
She joins an ever growing list of celebrities who have pledged their support in the wake of the disasters with Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Sandra Bullock and Leonardo DiCaprio all making substantial donations.

In another generous move, Kate Hudson previously revealed that she will be giving ‘100 percent’ of the proceeds earned from her Fabletics clothing brand to those in need.
Announcing her donation on social media, Kate said: ‘As we know Hurricane Harvey has been absolutely devastating and the areas affected need as much help in funding as possible.
‘Along with personal donations to multiple organizations, I want to include our @fabletics family and customers in an easy way to help continuing to fund as best we can.
‘Starting today, my company @fabletics will donate 100% of net proceeds from EVERY Leslie outfit (in stores and online) to the @AmericanRedCross for Hurricane Harvey relief. #linkinbio (sic).’
Kim Kardashian has also vowed to donate all proceeds from her recent Vogue Mexico cover shoot.
