Oak Cliff native Edie Brickell and her husband, Paul Simon, donated big to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The musicians donated $1 million to Harvey relief efforts. The money will be spent helping smaller towns surrounding the Houston area, including medical emergencies and housing restoration.

Brickell has shown generosity toward her hometown, Oak Cliff, in the past. Earlier this year, Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians helped raise $17,000 for the nonprofit music school La Rondalla.
