Lady Gaga Steps In To Support Youth Impacted By Hurricanes

GRAMMY winner pledges support for those impacted by hurricanes this year through Save the Children’s Journey of Hope program

GRAMMYs/Oct 12, 2017 - 11:03 pm

On Oct. 10 Lady Gaga announced she is devoting her $1 million donation in support of those impacted by the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico and the earthquakes in Mexico, to a specific cause — the mental and emotional well being of children and youth.

Gaga announced on her Born This Way Foundation website she will support Save the Children’s Journey of Hope program, which uses a variety of tools to help young people deal with trauma in the wake of natural disasters.

"Through a curriculum that includes cooperative play, discussion, art, meditation, and mindfulness practices, young people learn to recognize and understand their emotions and develop healthy coping skills," Gaga wrote. "Tens of thousands of youth have benefited from the program since it’s development in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and Save the Children is working to bring it to hundreds of thousands more in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico."

The announcement came on World Mental Health Day, and the Fame Monster has invited all of us to step up and consider making a contribution to the Journey of Hope program to support to mental and emotional needs of children.

"Mental health is just as vital to our wellbeing as physical health. That’s true for each of us, everyday, but it’s especially important for those coping with disaster and recovering from trauma," wrote Lady Gaga. "We must do everything within our power to support the full, vibrant recovery of these communities, from meeting their immediate needs to helping them to rebuild sustainably."

GRAMMY Winners Blog: Lady Antebellum

GRAMMYs/Dec 3, 2014 - 04:22 am

The Recording Academy asked a number of 52nd GRAMMY Award winners to share their thoughts on winning, performing, and simply experiencing the excitement of the telecast.

Last year we were so excited just to sit in the crowd. We never thought we would be on the stage performing just a year later. And winning our first GRAMMY Award was unbelievable. We were on the red carpet doing an interview when we found out. It caught us off guard, but certainly made our whole night wonderful.
— Hillary Scott

Talk about starstruck. It felt incredibly surreal seeing everyone backstage. We are as big fans of these other artists as everyone watching at home. We were happy to see so many artists from the Nashville music community go home with awards.
— Dave Haywood

I've watched the GRAMMYs since I was a kid. So many legends have performed on that stage. We sort of felt out of place, but we'll take it! "I Run To You" is a really special song to us, so to be recognized by the industry is very humbling.
