Taylor Swift just performed a personal song live for the first time ever.
The 30-year-old singer took part in Global Citizen's One World: Together at Homespecial, hosted in conjunction with the World Health Organization and the United Nations, on Saturday. After a number of artists performed inspirational and uplifting songs for viewers worldwide, Swift treated her fans to a performance of her emotional and touching song, "Soon You'll Get Better," which is featured on her latest album, Lover.
Introduced by Jimmy Fallon, the singer appeared behind a piano, playing the heartbreaking song, which is about Swift's mom's battle with cancer.
"Ooh-ah, you'll get better soon/'Cause you have to/And I hate to make this all about me
But who am I supposed to talk to?/What am I supposed to do/If there's no you?" Swift sang. "This won't go back to normal, if it ever was/It's been years of hoping, and I keep saying it because/'Cause I have to."
Hosted by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, and curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the Global Citizen event served as both a tribute to those leading the efforts to fight COVID-19, and a worldwide call-to-action with steps everyone can take to support coronavirus relief right now. The massive worldwide effort featured global health experts as well as an all-star lineup of performers, including artists, comedians and actors alike.
