Keith Urban does what he can to bring a little light into the life of a fan.
The 50-year-old country star recently visited Mercy Health St. Vincent Hospital in Toledo, Ohio to meet Marissa English, a fan who is too ill to attend his Graffiti U – Tourstop to participate.
English was born with a variety of health conditions, including an inoperable cyst in the brain, severe scoliosis and cerebral palsy. She is currently in hospice care but has always been a big fan of Urban.
"It has memorabilia from some other concerts we've been in. It has a T-shirt we put on a pillow that's lying next to it all the time, it's really cute because it picks up the pillow and hugs it and kisses it … She'll point to it and say, "Mr. Hottie, "said the English mother to WTOL.
The twenty-five-year-old Englishman's love for Urban became known to the nurses at the hospital, who helped launch a social media campaign to launch the" Coming Home. " On Thursday, when Urban came to Toledo's Huntington Center for a concert to privately entertain Marissa in her sickroom, it all came to fruition on Thursday.
Urban has previously acknowledged that it does not take much to draw on his feelings, and in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2016, he reported that he has a "good reputation" about once a month.
"If I have not cried for a while, I can say that I'm dammed up. Then, maybe once a month, I have a good reputation, a big avalanche of torrential rain, and I feel awesome for weeks. The streets are clean, the sky is blue, there's no humidity and it's beautiful, "he said.
He opened more of his comments in July and told Andrew Denton about his show, Interview " Everything "will make him rip." [It’s] Accumulative, accumulative things that did not promise a proper cry at the time, and they add up, you know, "he said," I mean, little things, passing time, children growing up, the loss of friends, lovers for all sorts of reasons – all of it.
