Taylor Swift, the US country singer, does go out of her way for her rooters, at times. Recently, the Shake It Up star visited the Boston Children’s Hospital to croon Adele’s heartbreaking track Someone Like You with a twenty year old leukemia patient called Ben.
In a YouTube video, posted in August, Ben said: “I recently underwent a bone marrow transplant due to leukemia. Taylor Swift stopped by the hospital for a surprise visit and dropped by my room to say hi! When she noticed the keyboard in my room, she asked me to play a song for her,”
He added: “I decided to play a song I had recently started working on which was ‘Someone Like You,’ by Adele. She said she would sing what she knew, and I said that I would play as much as I knew,”
“This was the most amazing moment in my life being able to accompany Taylor Swift.”
The 24 year old US singer rummaged through his musical notes and started to sing some of the lyrics while Ben played the on piano.
According to reports, speaking about Taylor Swift, Ben wrote that she is nice and cordial and probably made everyone’s day here at the hospital. It was so great of her to come out to visit all of them at the hospital.
