Swift agreed to attend after getting a letter in April from the groom’s sister.

She wrote about how her brother was a huge fan and how he and their ailing mother had danced to Swift’s song after the newlyweds were married in a hospital room.

Singer’s mother died shortly thereafter.

Swift had contacted Singer’s sister and they planned the surprise visit.

Swift also presented the couple a special card that stated: “So It’s Gonna Be Forever,” a lyric from ‘Blank Space’.

“Alright, I wanna talk about the fact that when I wrote this song I never in my life imagined I would be asked to play it at a wedding,” Swift told the crowd of the song, which is about Swift’s reputation for being a serial dater.

The 26-year-old singer, who recently split with her boyfriend of over a year, DJ Calvin Harris, also joked about her newly single status in an Instagram post.

‘Third wheel,’ she captioned a photo of herself posing with the bride and groom.
