Thank you, Taylor Swift, for reminding us that love is not dead.
The pop star was the surprise guest at a beachside wedding—a celebration months in the making after Swift heard the couple's heartbreaking love story.
Max Singer and Kenya Smith celebrated their wedding this weekend, but their first ceremony took place in a more somber setting. The pair wed in Singer's late mother's hospital room, and danced to Swift's "Blank Space" for his mother-son dance before she died, People reported.
Singer's sister Ali sent a letter to Swift explaining the family's story back in April, and the singer turned up to celebrate with the couple on their big day.
She gave them a handmade card painted with "Blank Space" lyrics, and performed the song on a piano while the couple—and eventually the rest of the wedding attendees—danced and sang along.
Swift is known for her charitable efforts as well as the many ways she makes fans feel loved. Recently, she met a fan who was about to lose her hearing, donated $50,000 to help her backup dancer's nephew fight cancer, and wrote a touching Mother's Day letter to a fan who lost her mom.
