DOLLY Parton is donating $1M to coronavirus research.
Her contribution comes after she said of the pandemic: "I think God is in this."
The country music icon posted on social media: "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.
"I am making a donation of $1 million to Vanderbilt towards that research and to encourage people that can afford it to make donations."
Yesterday Dolly posted a video to Instagram saying: "I want to shout out to all the first responders, all the servicemen and women and all the healthcare professionals all around the world for sacrificing your time and even your lives to help the folks in need at this time.
"I know it's easy for us to sit at home and watch you on television and feel sorry for you because what you're going through.
"But we are at war, and you're on the front lines.
"We just want you to know we are praying for you and appreciate you more than you can imagine."
