Oklahoma native, Carrie Underwood, donates $1 million for disaster relief, performs with Rolling Stones

Checotah, Oklahoma’s own country music sensation has donated $1 million  to the Red Cross for disaster relief, which will aid those rebuilding after Monday’s monstrous twister decimated the town of Moore, Oklahoma, according to a release on her website.

“I have watched the devastation in my home state of Oklahoma over the past several days with great sadness,” says Carrie. “With the help of my fans who attended my concerts over the past year, we can offer the Red Cross a little extra help in comforting those affected by the recent tornadoes.”

The charitable contribution to the Red Cross derives from the tour’s concert proceeds and was established when it launched in spring 2012.

“The impact of the tornadoes in Oklahoma and the Midwest was devastating and the road to recovery will be long for many families. Through the generosity of Carrie, the American Red Cross can quickly respond with shelter, food and comfort now, and with lasting help as they move toward recovery,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer for the Red Cross.

Earlier in the tour, following a performance in Atlantic City, NJ, Carrie designated funds to support the response and relief efforts in New Jersey in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

In other news, Carrie performed with none other than the Greatest Rock n’ Roll band, the Rolling Stones Saturday evening in Toronto.

Carrie joined the Stones on stage to sing the classic ‘It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It) with Mick Jagger (see video here).

The excited former American Idol winner tweeted:
