In 2016, Taylor surprised two fans, Max Singer and Kenya Smith, at their wedding in New Jersey. Apparently, the groom’s sister had contacted Taylor to let them know about the wedding and let them know that Max and his mother often danced in the hospital to “Blank Space” before his mother died. To the delight of the audience, Taylor sat down at the piano and began singing “Blank Space” at the reception.
