Just one day after Christmas, Taylor Swift decided to take a trip to Missouri to surprise one of her oldest fans! 96 year old Cyrus Porter, a World War ll veteran , received a Christmas miracle yesterday when his favorite singer popped in to say hi! The singer performed “Shake It Off” in front of Porter & 60 of his relatives. “My Popo was ecstatic! He was grinning from ear to ear and even had tears in his eyes,” family member Caroline Fowler shared. “The first thing he said to her was ‘How did you get here?’ He loved every moment. He told her how he was proud of his family, his country and Taylor Swift!” Cyrus recently lost his daughter, so his family added that this surprise visit couldn’t have come at a better time. “It was the best day ever and our family is thankful for this!” Caroline shared. “It meant so much for the family to see him so happy!” Family member Robert Frye added on Twitter, “It’s a Christmas Miracle!!! Thank you @taylorswift13. My grandpa was so excited! Won’t be able to get the smile off my grandpa’s face for months.” While many family members aren’t exactly sure who arranged the special guest’s arrival, they do know Cyrus recently expressed his love for Taylor in a local interview with KFVS news. The video went viral, which could have helped grab the attention of the A-list singer.”I’ve been to two concerts. Memphis and St Louis,” he shared with the local news station. “Look what she does…she puts on a show no one else puts on…I just liked the way she did stuff.”
How cute is he?!
