So, last week, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] had received a prom invitation from New Jersey high school senior Kevin McGuire, who is in the midst of a second cancer battle. On McGuire’s Facebook event page, which now has hundreds of thousands of fans, the teen’s older sister put out a plea asking Taylor to take her brother to his high school prom, which just happens to be his birthday.
In a Facebook status update last Friday, Taylor saw his prom invitation, and raised him an ACM Awards invite.
“Kevin, I’m so sorry but I won’t be able to make it to your prom,” she wrote. “But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up.. Would you be my date? Love, Taylor.”
In less than 30 minutes, Swift already had more than 40,000 fans ‘like’ her comment on Facebook and more than 4,000 comment on it.
