Taylor Swift Surprises 96-Year-Old Fan and World War II Veteran With Concert at His Home
Taylor's own grandfather is a World War II veteran.
A 96-year-old die-hard Taylor Swift fan and World War II veteran received the surprise of his life when the star walked into his home for the holidays.
The Grammy award-winning singer reportedly heard about "number one fan," Cyrus Porter, through a news story done on Porter last week.
According to Porter’s grandson, Robert Frye, Swift’s father, whose dad was a WWII veteran, had seen the news and told Swift.
On Monday night, the singer surprised Porter when she and her parents showed up at his home in Missouri and sang some of her hits, like “Shake It Off,” for more than an hour.
"It was amazing that they took their time out on the holidays to come spend time with us,” Frye told InsideEdition.com. “It was crazy. He was just surprised and overwhelmed. It’s the only celebrity he’s cared for.”
Porter has 27 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren who love the star and he’s even been to two of her concerts.
He wanted to go see her in concert at least once more.
“She pulled out the acoustic guitar and she said, ‘I wanted to make sure you got to see me one more time,” said Frye.
In the moment, captured on video, Porter is all smiles as he sings and claps along as she performs for him and his family.
Porter’s grandchildren called the gift a "Christmas miracle."
