New York - Lady Gaga is donating $1m to the Red Cross to aid those affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The New York-born singer posted on her blog on Wednesday that she is pledging the money on behalf of her parents and sister.

She also said she "would not be the woman or artist that I am today" if it weren't for places like the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn.
