Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to help those in need in Louisiana after floods caused widespread disaster in the state, killing at least 11 people.
In a statement to the AP on Tuesday, Swift commented that the people of Louisiana had given her a warm welcome when she began her "1989 World Tour" in the state last year.
"We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking," Swift, 26, said in the statement.
"I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time," the singer added.
