Singer Taylor Swift proved her heart is as big as her voice, when she paid a young Valley burn victim a surprise visit in the hospital Saturday.

Lilly also said that Isabella wasn't just your run-of-the-mill fan, but rather Taylor's music helped her through her treatment at the hospital.

A fulfilled wish for eight-year-old Isabella McCune who got a special visit from her favorite singer, Taylor Swift.


So, she recorded a video from her hospital bed, asking the pop superstar to pay her a visit.

But the good deeds didn't stop there for Taylor Swift, inviting 2,000 foster children and their families to watch her final Reputation Stadium Tour dress rehearsal on Saturday night.

She posed for photos with Isabella, her parents and brother Zachary, and also treated the youngster to a big bag of merchandise from her tour. Isabella has undergone 11 operations, including skin grafting on 50 per cent of her body, after she was severely burned in a fire pit explosion on St Patrick's Day (17Mar18).


"She was about to leave and I said 'Taylor, can I have a hug?' And she said, 'Yeah!" And when Taylor left the hospital, she gave Isabella a lasting gift.

'I heard you were here, and I wanted to visit you but maybe you can come and visit me, ' Isabella said. It says "Isabella! I hope you feel better soon, and I'm so honored you've been listening to my music".

Lilly revealed Taylor had been too afraid to hug Isabella in case she hurt her. I knew it meant a lot to Isabella'. "She was speechless. She was so happy", Lilly told PEOPLE.


The Phoenix girl is now at the Arizona Burn Center at MIHS were she has been getting treatments.
