Dolly Parton believes the coronavirus is a lesson from God. The country legend began a video at the bottom of her stairs, singing, "Climbing the stairway to heaven, because this virus has scared the H-E-L-L out of out us."
Switching to speaking, Parton continued, "I'm not making light of the situation. Well, maybe I am, because it's the light, I believe, that’s gonna dissolve the situation. I think God is in this, I really do. I think he's trying to hold us up to the light so we can see ourselves and see each other through the eyes of love. And I hope we learn that lesson."
"I think that when this passes, we're gonna all be better people," she said. "I know that I have a positive attitude about it, as negative as it seems to be right now. So just keep the faith, don't be too scared, it's gonna be alright, God loves us."
Dolly Parton sent fans a positive message of faith and reassurance while at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Parton says she believes this moment is a test from God.
