​Watch Taylor Swift serenade a six-year-old cancer patient

A six-year-old boy battling leukemia received a much-needed pick-me-up from Taylor Swift over the weekend.

Jordan Lee Nickerson, who also suffers from a rare condition called Williams Syndrome, got the surprise of a lifetime when his favourite singer came to see him at the Boston Children’s Hospital.

Taylor, 24, spent several hours with the excited youngster and even performed an acoustic rendition of “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” In a Facebook video posted by Jordan's family, the little boy can be seen dancing and singing along delightedly as his pop idol serenades him.

It’s no wonder that Taylor is often cited as one of the most kind-hearted celebrities in the music business. In March, the singer made a surprise appearance at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, where she performed and visited with sick children for more than five hours.

She’s also an avid philanthropist, lending her time and money to a number of children’s causes, including the Make-A-Wish foundation.
