On Saturday night, May 21st, country queen and humanitarian Taylor Swift took the unprecedented step of opening the last dress rehearsal for her "Speak Now Tour" to fans as a fundraiser for victims of recent deadly tornadoes in the Southeast. During the course of two-hour show's theatrical presentation, Taylor played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, ukulele, banjo and piano for the show, dubbed "Speak Now...Help Now."
The event, which drew over 13,000 fans, raised over $750,000, with 100 percent of the ticket sales going directly to help tornado victims via the Speak Now … Help Now Fund established through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Big up to Swift for her big heart and for going out of her way to help her fellow Americans.
