Country royalty Dolly Parton announced Friday that she's donating $1 million to Monroe Caroll Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

It's just the latest kind act in a string of the superstar giving back to the community.

Dolly made the donation announcement at the hospital, where she stopped by to visit patients and sing tunes from her new children's album, "I Believe in You."

Dolly's sister and niece joined her as all three spoke about how the hospital has helped their lives. Dolly's niece was treated for leukemia at the hospital when she was younger, and is now a healthy adult.

Dolly sang "Chemo Hero" to patients, which was a song inspired by her niece's battle with cancer.
