Lady Gaga has announced that she will be donating $1 million to the Red Cross relief for Hurricane Sandy.

The 'Born This Way' songstress grew up in New York City and felt strongly about the disaster when it struck her hometown last week, causing billions of dollars of devastation.

"If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," Gaga wrote in a message on her Little Monsters blog.

"New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."

"Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, and my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us."

"Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas," she concluded.

Gaga was particularly devastated by the events last week, posting a series of emotional posts on her website.

"Miss you mom, dad, natali and all my friends."

"I wanna be there in the rain with you. I know its gonna be ok, but that water flooding downtown while my friends are sitting in the dark is making me sad. I love you New York.

"Its such a testament to New York that none of my friends or family members have left. not even my blind grandma in NJ."

"The 26-year-old then posted a blog on her website, titled 'Hurricane Blues,' in which she recalled her old haunts from when she lived in the city before she achieved fame.

"I'm not sure where to put these feelings. I'm so sad. I feel like my entire childhood is underwater. The boardwalk in Atlantic city, my old Apts in Brooklyn and LES. All the bars and friends," Gaga wrote.

"I'm just so sad. I know it will be ok. I'm not sure why I feel this way. maybe homesickness, or maybe its easier to be a gypsy if you know your soul grows from somewhere great, and that great place protected me my whole life, now parts are destroyed. just very sad and pensive today. Thinking of everyone today."
