Keith Urban Serenades Seriously Ill Fan in Hospital


Keith Urban Serenades Seriously Ill Fan in Hospital

Keith Urban gave a fan a private performance the other day – a moment she will never forget.

Due to her declining health, Urban’s biggest fan 25-year-old Marissa English was unable to make it to his concert in Toledo Ohio last week, so the superstar took the show to her.

English was born with a wide range of health conditions that include hydrocephalus, an inoperable cyst on her brain, cerebral palsy and severe scoliosis and has been in the hospital for quite some time.

Knowing that she would be unable to use her ticket to see Urban, (the man she calls "Mr. Hottie"), hospital staff at Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center, where Marissa is a patient, got to work with a social media campaign to bring the superstar to her. They kept the plan from English, so when Keith walked in, the shock was real.

Marissa keeps a picture of the country star by her bed but seeing the ‘real thing’ was a surreal moment for the Urban lifetime fan.

Keith performed her favourite song ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’ leaving not a dry eye in the room.

English's family and friends who attended Urban's concert were upgraded, and the he dedicated the entire show to Marissa, calling her his "biggest fan."
