Dolly Parton is giving a major donation to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. The 71-year-old country singer surprised the young patients in the infusion center of the hospital on Friday in her native Nashville. During her visit, Dolly led a sing-along from songs off of her new children’s album – “I Believe in You” – while she spent the day visiting the patients and their parents. Dolly also announced that she will be donating $1 million to the hospital in honor of her niece, who was treated there for leukemia several years ago. “I had a great time today visiting @VUMCchildren & in honor of my niece & all the superhero kids I’m pledging $1,000,000 to the hospital!” Dolly tweeted after her visit.
