Taylor Swift Just Fulfilled a Dying 4-Year-Old Fan's Wish


Somehow, Taylor Swift keeps out-doing herself — with acts of kindness.

When the mega pop star heard a 4-year-old fan named Jalene Salinas has terminal brain cancer, she FaceTimed the little girl for a 20-minute chat, Kens5.com reported. The news outlet helped start the Twitter hashtag #ShakeItOffJalene, which caught the singer-songwriter’s attention Monday night, leading to the wonderful moment below.

I’m so sorry you’re having a bad night,” Swift said, according to Kens5. “I’m so happy to talk to you though, and I’m so happy you like ‘Shake It Off.’”

You can watch the recorded moment here.

Bravo, Ms. Swift! You have a heart of gold.
