Ella Yelich-O’Connor who goes by her stage name “Lorde” has reached out to Kiwis who were affected by the 7.5 magnitude earthquake this morning that killed two and has caused ongoing havoc.


The 20-year-old who is based in the U.S reached out to her followers back home, urging them to “stay safe and help out in any way you can”.


“my heart goes out to new zealand and everyone affected by this quake. we are made of tough stuff”.

“Sending best wishes and love to you and your parents, Rhee. Xxxx,” wrote the Kiwi singer, on the families Givealittle page.

The grateful family were blown away by the act of generosity from the pop star.

“What an amazing young woman she is. There’s no personal connection so I’m very humbled that she would think of us.”

In June this year, Ella also donated $20,000 to a struggling Hutt Valley charity called Fuel the Need that feeds hungry school children.
