Taylor Swift Makes 8-Year-Old's Wish Come True

03/26/2013
.
(Radio.com) It's hard to deny Taylor Swift's obvious love for her fans. From day one the "22″ singer has made her fans the priority in her singing career, giving them special access to her tour, walking through the crowds at concerts and giving more hugs than any normal person to anyone who asked.

But plenty of fans gained more respect for Taylor this past Friday on the fifth date, third city of her Red Tour when she pulled 8-year-old Emma Routh on stage at the end of "Sparks Fly."

Emma is fighting Fanconi Anemia, a rare blood disorder that leads to bone marrow failure. In her short 8 years, Emma has already gone difficult bouts of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, surpassing any prognosis her physicians gave her in the beginning. But how did this little girl from Texas make it all the way to Charlotte to experience such a once-in-a-lifetime day?

Back on March 10, The New 103.7 received a Facebook message from a wonderful Lexington, NC listener that told the story of Emma and how she was granted a Make-A-Wish to meet Taylor in Charlotte but unfortunately, it fell through last minute. Many listeners and fans of Emma rallied to get her situation noticed and Tanner from Tanner in the Morning couldn't let this pass without giving it his old college try to make this girl's dream come true.

Fast forward to March 20: after 10 days of calls back and forth between The New 103.7, Big Machine Label Group and Emma's parents, her wish was finally granted. We not only secured her a pair of front row tickets to the show, but a meet & greet backstage to visit with Taylor Swift! Emma touched Taylor so much backstage that the unforgettable little girl made the superstar stop mid-show to bring her on stage. Read more and see photos.
