After this week’s historic Supreme Court decision that reversed Roe vs. Wade, rapper and singer Lizzo has donated seven figures to a non-profit to ensure some women in need of reproductive medical attention can get the proper care.

The “Truth Hurts” chart-topper pledged some of the proceeds from her “Special Tour” to Planned Parenthood on Friday (June 24th), hours after abortion was outlawed in about 19 states and a judgment that protected women’s rights to release children was stripped before American eyes. 

Live Nation, the tour’s promoters, said they would match her generous gift.

Lizzo’s announcement came via social media. She shared she would donate $500,000 from her tour. 

Since Live Nation will match dollar for dollar, the organization will receive $1 million in total donations.

“The most important thing is action & loud voices,” Lizzo wrote in another tweet “@PPFA @AbortionFunds & organizations like them—will need funding to continue offering services to people who are most harmed by this ban.”

The Grammy Award-winner said she will not only be donating to Planned Parenthood, but to other another group.

“Black women & women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources,” she tweeted. “This is a great loss but not a new one. Go to http://lizzolovesyou.com to donate, sign the Bans Off My Body petition and sign up to volunteer and take action.”

More concerned artists, like Rage Against the Machined, will be soon dropping money to support.
