Country music legend Dolly Parton recently announced she will be making a $1 million donation to a coronavirus research program at Vanderbilt University, CNN reports. 

“My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who’s been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure,” Parton wrote in a statement posted to Instagram.

Parton has also shared uplifting messages with her fans on social media and encouraged them to “keep the faith” in trying times, according to Billboard.
