Country music superstar Dolly Parton recently addressed the big donation that led to a coronavirus vaccine.

‘I just wanted it to do good.’

The country singer donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University to help develop the vaccine.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, Parton’s $1 million donations and the work done by researchers at Vanderbilt led to Moderna announcing it had produced a coronavirus vaccine that is nearly 95% effective.

Parton discussed her donation during an interview on the Today show:

“I’m just happy that anything I do can help somebody else. When I donated the money to the COVID fund, I just wanted it to do good, and evidently, it is! Let’s hope we can find a cure real soon.”

“I’m sure many millions of dollars from many people went into that. But I just felt so proud to have been part of that little seed money that will hopefully grow into something great and help to heal this world.”

“I’m a very proud girl today to know I had anything at all to do with something that’s going to help us through this crazy pandemic.”
