    Taylor Swift spent Sunday afternoon sweetly serenading six-year-old Jordan Lee Nickerson, who's battling multiple illnesses at Boston Children's Hospital.

    The brave youngster was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome when he was just 9 months and underwent open heart surgery at 18 months.

    Two weeks ago, little Jordan was diagnosed with Leukemia and he has since received visits from the 24-year-old pop starlet as well as Spider-Man.

    In the three videos - posted on Nickerson's Facebook page - the seven-time Grammy winner spends quality time with the enthusiastic boy.

    'I didn't know you'd come!' Jordan told Taylor.

    'We wanted to surprise you,' Swift responded with a smile. 'I like to play with Play-Doh and I like to talk about Spider-Man, what about you?'

    'I know you like singing songs for people,' Jordan said.

    Lighting up the room with his smile, the tough tyke exclaimed: 'Thank you! Just do it!'

    Taylor then played a spirited match of air hockey with Nickerson, who received a boost from standing on a chair.

    Aw, that's sweet. I'll put my hate on low for her for at least a week. And yes, that POOR little boy! That is some shitty luck! I'm glad that Taylor and Spider Man took the time to visit him and make him feel better.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Supposedly (per CDAN), TS does quite a few of these hospital visits, often without publicity, and stays for hours and gives her full attention to the kids. I'm kind of neutral on TS...she is a weird chick but this is one thing that she seems to get very right.

    Look at this bitch using this poor sick kid to get attention for herself and to promote her upcoming movie. Jeez!

    LOL - sorry but I was going into shock that no one had posted that yet. I like Taylor and believe she does these visits from the heart.

    Very sweet! Prayers to this little boy that is fighting for his life. I hate that children have to battle such things that would break any adult.

    When this was video was first posted on Reddit some fan said she does this pretty frequently - just randomly pops into hospitals and visits kids. No prior warning. No publicity. The surprise and a request to staff ensures no press is called ahead of time. The only way you hear about it is if the kids' family posts videos or on Facebook. It's really super sweet.

    Taylor Swift Sings Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ While Leukemia Patient Plays Piano – Try Not Crying! | Taylor Swift : Just Jared

    Taylor Swift Sings Adele's 'Someone Like You' While Leukemia Patient Plays Piano - Try Not Crying!


    Taylor Swift sings along while a young leukemia patient plays the piano to the tune of Adele‘s hit song “Someone Like You” during a children’s hospital visit on Sunday (August 3) in Boston, Mass.

    The 24-year-old country singer popped in the boy’s room and saw that he had a keyboard so she asked what he had been working on. He just so happened to be practicing the Adele song!

    “That was so great. That was beautiful,” Taylor told the boy after they played together. “You killed that. I love that you wrote it out. That’s really amazing. You have a great understanding of it.”
