P!NK revealed she tested positive for coronavirus two weeks ago and announced she will pledge one MILLION dollars to help combat the global pandemic.
Alecia “P!nk” Moore, 40, said that she was “fortunate” enough to access a test in March after both she and her three-year-old son Jameson began to show symptoms of COVID-19.
The Try singer posted on Twitter Friday: “Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I were showing symptoms of COVID-19.
“Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive.
“My family was already sheltering at home and continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor.
The Grammy winner said she has since recovered from the virus and tested negative this week:
“Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankful negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible."
She continued to criticize the United State's response to the pandemic: “This illness is serious and real.
"People need to know that the illness affect the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor.
“And we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities."
P!nk then revealed she will make two MASSIVE contributions, the first to honor the hospital her mom Judy worked at for 18 years.
“In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontline everyday, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother."
The Pennsylvania native will also donate to the city she calls home along with her husband Carey Hart and their two kids.
“Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis fun," the Just Give Me a Reason songstress said.
She concluded warning everyone to be safe and showing gratitude for those on the frontline:
“THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes!”
