Taylor Swift Personally Invited This 7-Year-Old Pianist With Autism to Her Show
Jacob Velazquez is one of Taylor Swift’s biggest fans. The 7-year-old listens to her albums every day and loves watching her videos on YouTube, his mom, Tina Velazquez, wrote on Autism Speaks.
Jacob, who was diagnosed with autism at age 4, is also a jaw-droppingly good pianist. In the hopes of getting Swift’s attention, he created a medley of Swift’s songs, which he plays by heart in the incredible video below:
@JacobsPiano I HAVE to give you a hug for that beautiful piano medley you did! Please come to a show on my tour and say hi to me? My treat.

The invitation comes just in time for Jacob’s birthday, which is on September 29. Way to go, Jacob!
