The legendary performer re-wrote the lyrics to her disco anthem, “I Will Survive,” changing the chorus to "You Will Survive." She even treated Inside Edition to an impromptu performance.

Gaynor is raising money for Hurricane Harvey victims through her foundation IWillSurvive.org by selling "Texas Will Survive" T-shirts for $20. All proceeds from those shirts will benefit The Salvation Army. 

Other Hollywood stars are also giving back. 

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio donated $1 million to The United Way, actress Sandra Bullock gave $1 million to the Red Cross and celebrity chef Rachael Ray has provided $1 million dedicated to disaster relief for animals.

Singer Miley Cyrus is giving $500,000 and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, a Houston resident, was seen volunteering her time and helping out at a distribution center in Conroe.

On Thursday morning, ABC's Good Morning America, held a telethon as part of the "Day of Giving," an initiative by ABC parent company Disney.

Stars like former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, ABC meteorologist Ginger Zee and singer Ashanti manned the phones to accept donations from viewers.
