Taylor Swift may be one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, but she still likes to give back to her fans. So when the star received a heartfelt plea from the sister of admirer Max Singer, Swift decided to turn up to his wedding. And what happened next blew the bride and groom away.
Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, in December 1989 and lived on her family’s Christmas tree farm in Wyomissing. And early on, she discovered a love of singing. In fact, the talent is in her genes; Swift’s grandmother actually worked as an opera singer professionally.
But the future star got her start performing at events, including singing the U.S. national anthem at a basketball game for the Philadelphia 76ers when she was just 11 years old. Obviously inspired, Swift started writing her own songs and began learning to play the guitar.
