Taylor Swift Surprises 96-Year-Old World War II Veteran In Touching Video

Christmas isn't over for Taylor Swift.

On Monday, December 26, the 27-year-old singer concluded her winter break by surprising one of her oldest fans.

Taylor Swift took a short stop in New Madrid, Missouri to say hello to 96-year-old Cyrus Porter, a World War II veteran.

You can watch the “Blank Space” star surprising Cyrus and his entire family in the touching video above.

The footage shows Taylor Swift entering Cyrus' home followed by her camera crew. As soon as she enters his living room, she's greeted by over 60 of his relatives who are crying and cheering with joy.

In a few of the clips, you can hear Taylor Swift perform while an adorable little girl dances in front of her.

In a few additional videos, you can see Cyrus sitting in a chair clapping along. After the performance, Taylor Swift spent over an hour hanging out with the family.

It definitely looks like she's their Christmas angel!

Cyrus' family member Caroline Fowler opened up to E! News about the experience. She said,

My Popo was ecstatic! He was grinning from ear to ear and even had tears in his eyes… The first thing he said to her was ‘How did you get here?' He loved every moment. He told her how he was proud of his family, his country and Taylor Swift!

I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING.

That's so damn beautiful, I'm touched.

Family members and friends shared several pictures of Cyrus and Taylor on Facebook as well.

The two best friends took a selfie together, so get your tissues ready.
