ST. LOUIS (AP) – Ninety-six-year-old Cyrus Porter is a devoted Taylor Swift fan and has traveled to her shows, but on Monday, he didn’t have to go anywhere. Swift came to him.

A day after Porter hosted 72 people for Christmas, a van pulled into the driveway of his home in New Madrid, about 130 miles south of St. Louis.

Out stepped Swift and her parents. The 27-year-old singer stayed about an hour and sang “Shake It Off” as Porter’s relatives sang along.

Swift had learned about the World War II combat veteran’s fandom and decided to surprise him.
