Blake Shelton donates $600k to children's hospital

Blake Shelton has donated $600,000 to a children's hospital.

The 'Came Here To Forget' hitmaker revealed he had given the hefty sum to the Jimmy Everest Children's Hospital as he took to the stage in Oklahoma City over the weekend.

Speaking from the stage at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, he said: "They don't turn any kids away. You come in there, you have a problem, they don't turn anybody away, so I thought, 'That's a place that needs some money.' Let's all do the right thing. This is our money, Oklahoma."

Meanwhile, Blake - who was joined at the gig by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani - previously admitted he "still can't believe" he's dating the 'Used To Love You' singer.

He quipped: "I still can't believe it. I thought she must have, like, some vision problems ... Maybe she needs help, I don't know."

And the 40-year-old singer also admitted he didn't know some of his favourite songs belonged to her.

He added: "I didn't think I knew much of her music until I, until you go to one of her shows, and I remember - this has been like a month ago - she flew into Oklahoma and I was driving to pick her up at the airport. And I was flipping through XM radio and I stopped on this song and I was like, 'That voice sounds like Gwen. What in the hell is this - why don't I know this?'

"It's this song called 'It's My Life,' which was a huge record for No Doubt. And I'm going, 'I didn't know Gwen sang that song.' I've always known 'Hey Baby'. I didn't know she sang that freaking song. All these songs. It's like, 'Wow, that was you? That's you and we've kissed? Wow, that is amazing!'"
