Taylor Swift is one of the kindest people in the world. We’ve established this over and over again. But what we are growing to love the most about Taylor is the way that she’s so open and kind when she doesn’t have to be.
Some celebrities don’t spend a lot of time relating to their fans, but Taylor is different. She spends time getting to know her fans – even if it’s just over the internet. Fans aren’t people that she should fear, they are people that she treasures. We can’t ignore that.
While she is on the road for her 1989 tour she’s done everything that she could to make the fans feel a part of the show. But as touching as things have been – nothing has been as touching and as intimate as her performing Ronan at her Glendale, Arizona stop.
For those of you that don’t know – Ronan is a song that she performed on Stand Up to Cancer. We can’t listen to it without falling into a puddle of tears.
“I just wanted to take a moment to try and play this song,” Taylor said. “I can’t promise that I will sing it well or not get really emotional, but I’m gonna try…I think because Maya’s here tonight, I think she deserves it.”
The mother of Ronan, a boy who died from neuroblastoma in 2011 at the age of four, was in the crowd at the Glendale stop so Taylor took the opportunity to perform the song for her and we can’t watch it without being reduced to a puddle of tears.
Maya, who is Ronan’s mother posted a picture of her family with Taylor.

I work a lot. Fangirlish is my baby. I work in social media professionally and I love it - which is probably why I don't keep up on my own. I don't sleep enough and I obsess too much over my favorite things. I need to work on combing my hair more. Or at elast I need to stop dying it different colors.
