Taylor Swift Meets 7-Year-Old Fan Injured Outside her Concert
Her RED tour may be jam-packed, but Taylor Swift took time out of her schedule to meet a special young fan on Saturday (September 21).
Back in August, 7-year-old Grace Markel was hit by a car upon arriving at the country crooner's concert in Chicago.
The young fan suffered two skull fractures, multiple head lacerations, a concussion, and road rash. After recovering, Grace's parents took her to Taylor's concert in Nashville this past weekend.
Surprising the little girl, the 23-year-old songstress brought her backstage to spend some time together. According to Grace's mother Amy Markel in an interview with People, "Taylor greeted Grace by her name and immediately knelt down and hugged her. She told Grace she had a cold and asked Grace to sing extra loud to help her out."
After posing for pics, "Taylor's mother told Grace she was so sorry about what happened to her, and she gave me a hug saying she sympathized with what we'd been through. It was so surreal and amazing...[The meeting] was just a warm and genuine exchange that made it feel like time has stopped, and it was just the two of them. We feel so very lucky and blessed."
