This past weekend, country music superstar, Taylor Swift, raised $750,000 for the Community Foundation of Tennessee and the recent tornado victims.
Swift opened her final Speak Now dress rehearsal at the Bridgestone Arena to the public and streamed some of the performance online. The event, which was held in Nashville, Tennessee, was called Speak Now, Help Now.
It was so wonderful, the 21-year-old singer told Access Hollywood. It was almost like playing our first show because we were playing for 13,000 people and it is the whole show the way we would do the last dress rehearsal and I'm just so excited that we got to raise $750,000 for the victims of the tornadoes.
Swift acknowledged and appreciated people's generosity.
It was such a wonderful night and I'll never forget it. The fact that that many people on last minute's notice wanted to come out and pay for their tickets and donate that money to them, Swift said.
This was a big weekend for Swift as on Sunday she took home the Billboard award for Top Country Artist, Top Country Album for Speak Now and the Top 200 Albums Award.
