Taylor Swift Keeps Promise to Ill Fan as RED Tour Kicks Off
Written by Project Inspired | April 15, 2013
PI girls, we know that many of you are big fans of Taylor Swift–we are too! And when we heard about her latest act of kindness, well, we couldn’t help but share it with you!
Last weekend, Swift upheld a promise to take Kevin McGuire, a fan and teen with leukemia, as her date to the ACM awards. He was supposed to go last year but was too ill to attend at the time. Swift didn’t forget him and her promise–and he finally got to go this year! So sweet.
What else has Swift been up to these days? About a month ago, we previewed her upcoming Diet Coke commercial in one of our Friday web round-ups. In the video, Swift talked about a concerted effort to “dress her age” along with some other cute tidbits.
Now, the Diet Coke commercial has finally been released. And, of course, it’s adorable! Check it out below:
Several weeks ago, Swift also announced her full RED tour (which we covered) along with two videos previewing the shows. “I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my RED album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The RED Tour,” she wrote on her site. “I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!” Here she is jamming on her guitar from opening night:
In this clip, the multi-talented star is drumming during to “Holy Ground” during her show in Omaha:
Several of you mentioned in the comments on the last post that you’d be attending one of the shows. We’d love to hear how it went and what your favorite song was!
