AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift truly has a heart of gold. Prior to kicking off her highly-anticipated "Reputation" tour, the former country singer took time out to treat adoptive and foster families in Phoenix, Arizona to her final dress rehearsal of her tour at University of Phoenix Stadium on Saturday, May 5. She also threw a pizza party for them.
Multiple reports stated that Taylor invited over 2,000 foster and adoptive families to the private concert. Before the concert, she asked the audience if it was their first time attending a concert. About 500 hands flew into the air, according to the reports.
While cameras weren't allowed during the performances, attendees were able to take photos with the songstress after the concert. One concertgoer told E! News that Taylor stayed for almost four hours to take pictures and meet all the families.
"We received an email a few days ago through an organization called AZAFAP (Arizona Association of Foster and Adoptive Parents)," Kellie Dillon told the site. "They help organize events and extra-curricular things for foster kids and foster families. They released 2,000 tickets and everyone thought it was a scam at first."
"We thought it was too good to be true, but we all kept it a secret (per Taylor's orders) and sure enough had the time of our lives," she continued. "I don't think Taylor understand what this meant to these foster and adoptive families! Some of these children have been through terrible journeys in their lifetime, so to be able to escape for an incredible evening like that was out of this world."
Kellie went on gushing over the "Delicate" singer, "She was so genuine and we truly felt like we were hanging out with a friend and had a pizza party at the end of the night. A magical evening we will never forget."
Some concertgoers took to social media to share photos of their experience. Among them was a foster mother named Abbi Williams, who posted a picture of her children posing in a group photo with Taylor as well as a photo of them holding up autographed covers of "Reputation".
