Demi Lovato spoke about women’s empowerment, Hurricane Harvey relief and more on Tuesday’s “GMA.” Watch the video below.

Robin Roberts began the live interview by asking Lovato about her contributions to Texas in the wake of the devastating hurricane. “I decided to partner with Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas, and we all kind of developed a fundraiser with the Houston Food Bank,” she shared, stressing, “It’s just important that we continue to keep Houston in our prayers and in our thoughts.” In six days, the online fundraiser has brought in more than $118,000 from nearly 250 people.

Lovato was actually on the morning show to discuss another good cause. Her latest collection for Fabletics has a charity component. “A portion of the proceeds go to Girl Up, which is an organization that is all about women’s empowerment and girl empowerment. We’re very excited,” the singer told Roberts. The funds will go towards a bike program in Malawi that helps young girls get transportation to school. One supporter in attendance shared, “Girl Up has really empowered me to understand what we can do as young women to empower girls around the world with things as simple as education and health and safety.”

Roberts was full of praise for how far Lovato has come in her journey, which prompted the former child star to say, “I think that when you’re open and your honest with people, it leaves room for people to be able to relate to you.” She continued, “When, you know, people have somebody to look to, to relate to, when they’re going through the same things that maybe you have, or other people have gone through, just to know that you can overcome it is very helpful. So that’s why I decided to be so open with my story.”

Lovato also talked about performing at the VMAs and teased her new album, which will be out later this month. This was also her second “Good Morning America” appearance in the last month. As Gossip Cop reported, Lovato performed in a summer concert with Jax Jones and Cheat Codes a few weeks ago. Check out the new video below!
