Earlier this year, Taylor Swift dropped her first album in three years, Reputation. On Saturday, with just a few days left until the start of her official Reputation tour, Taylor Swift invited 2,000 foster kids to her show at the University of Arizona. (Actually, it was a dress rehearsal.) Even so, Swift’s thoughtful act made more than a just few fans’ dreams come true.
On Saturday, Swift gave 2,000 Arizona foster children and their parents the chance to watch her perform—and for free. Not only did the celeb singer give the kiddos a standout show to watch, but she also treated them free pizza. Dinner and a show—with Taylor Swift, no less—what could be better?
A night my girls and I will always remember – meeting Taylor Swift!! Thank you for such a generous evening with your littlest fans. Your show is amazing – you and your team did an incredible job!! #taylorswift #reputationtour #goseeit #reputationstadiumtour #fosterkids #concert #heartofgold @gymnastmaddi @izzibgrace
Even though the media wasn’t allowed in to Swift’s final dress rehearsal for the kids, plenty of the foster parents shared sweet pics and posts on social media afterwards. One mom wrote on Instagram, “A night my girls and I will always remember – meeting Taylor Swift! Thank you for such a generous evening with your littlest fans. Your show is amazing – you and your team did an incredible job!!”
Swift may be a superstar, but clearly, she cares about her fans! She even held a meet-and-greet after the performance, where she posed for photos with the kids and their families. Saturday’s performance isn’t the first time Swift has done something awesome for her fans; in October, Swift held a super secret listening party for her fans at her home in Rhode Island. And she also has quite the low-key charitable habit, too: in March, Swift donated to March for Our Lives and in April, donated to RAINN for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Looks like Swift has certainly lived her to her “reputation”—of being pretty awesome with her fans and important causes.
