Watch: Taylor Swift’s Adele Duet with Leukemia Patient Will Make Your Day
A video was just posted to YouTube of Taylor singing Adele’s “Someone Like You” alongside Ben, a very talented leukemia patient. In the video, Taylor sings the song while Ben accompanies her on a keyboard. This duet is beautiful and it’s definitely going to make your day. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think!
According to Buzzfeed, Taylor went to the Boston Children’s Hospital to visit with patients. It sounds like this was on the same trip Taylor took in August, remember this video? Ben was in the hospital to receive a bone marrow transplant when Taylor came to visit. When Taylor came to his room, she asked Ben to play something on his keyboard. Ben explained to the site, “I had recently been working on Adele’s ‘Someone Like You,’ so I asked if she would sing along while I played, to which she kindly obliged.” So awesome!
It sounds like Taylor made a really great impression on Ben. He revealed, “Taylor was amazing. She was definitely as nice (or nicer) as she came across in the video. It was so nice of her to visit everyone in the hospital.” This is why we love Taylor, she does so many wonderful things!
Ben received a transplant from his younger brother, a 100% match. Since then, he’s had no complications! To help others improve their chances of receiving a perfect match, sign up for BeTheMatch.org.
