Taylor Swift surprised a young fan by turning up at the Boston Children's Hospital to sing a song with him. Jordan Nickerson, a 6-year-old leukemia patient who also suffers from Williams Syndrome sang along to We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together as Taylor did her thing on the guitar.

Williams Syndrome causes delay in language abilities, but that didn't stop the cheerful boy from clearly expressing his immense excitement about meeting his idol.

"I know you always sing songs for people," he said, at which Taylor replied "I do, I love singing songs for people, but I want to sing a song for you more than all the other people."

His response? "Thank you! Let's do it!" See if you don't get teardrops on your guitar when he starts dancing.

 

Even if you're not a Swifty, we trust you'd be able to find it in your heart to think that it was incredibly cool of Taylor to play air hockey with Jordan afterwards.
