Taylor Swift Meets With A 7-Year-Old Fan Who Was Hit By A Car Going To Her Concert!

taylor swift meets young fan backstage after hit by car

Look at this do-gooder! If more people cared as much as Taylor Swift, this world would be a better place!

You may not know this, but Swifty took time out before one of her summer concerts to meet with 7-year-old Grace Markel. The little girl was hit by an SUV while she was walking to the singer’s concert on August 10th.

She got out of a taxi with her dad, and was hit by an uninsured driver with a suspended license, while going about 30MPH.

After making a recovery from her severe injuries, which included two skull fractures, multiple cuts on her head, a concussion and road rash, the girl’s parents got her tickets to another concert!

Then the magic happened!

At the September 21st concert in Nashville, Swifty invited the family backstage before the show! The mother, Amy Markel, described it:

“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… 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.”

Aww!

And then the country cutie signed the sleeve of the Taylor Swift shirt Grace was wearing and posed for photos.

As for Grace, she said Taylor was “nice and tall and pretty.”

That's how we'd describe her too!

We’re just glad that this AH-Mayzing young girl was able to see her favorite singer and overcame such an awful set of injuries.

    A big thank you to Taylor Swift for going out of her way for this little girl, she didn't have to and she did.

    It is a shame our young always pay for the indiscretions of their elders. Come on people, we need to stop going down this slippery slope together as a people and make this world a better place.

    What a sweetheart! Media has done Taylor so wrong this year. Always nagging on her about trivial things. Stories/acts of kindness like this one have been going the whole year, but we never hear about it. Which is what Taylor wants i suppose (no PR), but its still so annoying she gets close to 0 credit. She is a very kind girl for sure. Like that amazing encouraging note she wrote for a fan who was having tough time. Baked cake and cookies fans. Meets children with cancer and other severe diseases every show. Visits hospitals to play for sick children etc. etc. Dating that pimply boyband guy was the worst mistake. In our social media age ***** teenage girl fans have quite a power and can make you out to be a monster. But luckily boy bands die soon…with that hopefully the hostility will die as well.

    And Taylor is going to pick up her medical bills, right? She has more money than 97% of the people in this world - it's the least she could do for this sweet little girl & her family. It isn't Taylor's fault the accident happened, but step it up!

    What a nice thing for Taylor to do.
    My family and I got hit by an uninsured driver when I was about 11-12 driving up to Washington State to visit the grandparents. Not fun. They took my mom and I to the xray since I was in the back of the station wagon and got thrown against the tailgate.
