Taylor Swift plays surprise show at fan's wedding reception


64th Annual BMI Pop Awards - Arrivals

A pair of newlyweds in the US got an unexpected gift at their wedding reception - a performance by Taylor Swift.

The superstar - who recently split from her boyfriend Calvin Harris - played a stripped-down version of her song Blank Space at Max Singer and Kenya Smith's reception in New Jersey as amazed guests sang along.

Taylor agreed to turn up and sing after getting a letter from the groom's sister.

She wrote about how her brother was a huge fan and how he and their ailing mother had danced to Taylor's song after the newlyweds were married in a hospital room. His mother died shortly afterwards.

Taylor contacted Max's sister and they planned the surprise visit.

The chart-topper also presented the couple with a special card that said "So It's Gonna Be Forever", which is a lyric from Blank Space.
