Taylor Swift took time during her show Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina to share the spotlight with a special fan. Before the gig, Taylor met eight-year-old Emma, who suffers from a rare blood disorder. Always willing to go above and beyond for her supporters, T wanted to do something more than a routine meet-and-greet with Emma. While finishing “Sparks Fly,” Taylor plucked Emma out of the audience to introduce her onstage, giving Emma a concert memory she’ll never forget.
A post on Emma’s Facebook support page called Prayers For Emma reads, “Taylor Swift, thank you for making our night by pulling Emma up on stage...This was a night we will never forget. Emma kept telling me, ‘I feel so special tonight.’ When we are not promised a tomorrow with our sweet Emma, every moment counts. You gave us memories that will last a lifetime.”
