Country singer Keith Urban got to meet his #1 fan in Ohio who’s battling serious health issues.
25-year-old Marissa English was supposed to attend Keith’s recent show in Toledo, Ohio. She’s a huge fan of the singer, according to her mom, Marlise Matthews. “She adores him. Everything revolves around Keith. She loves his music and loves pictures of him around,” Marlisse revealed to Inside Edition.
However, Marissa was too sick to go and ended up in the hospital instead of the show. She was born with grave health conditions including severe scoliosis, cerebral palsy and an inoperable cyst on her brain. Doctors didn’t expect her to live long, but she has survived for 25 years and enjoyed her life. Sadly though, the young woman is now headed to hospice care.
Nurses started a social media campaign, working to get Keith to come to visit Marissa. He obliged, and it was the biggest surprise that Marissa ever received! “When he first walked in, I don’t think it quite registered as to who he was, ’till she looked at the picture of him hanging beside her bed,” Marlise said. Then she pointed to to him, and “it all connected that he was actually standing at her bedside.”
Keith not only gave her hugs and posed for pictures, but he also gave Marissa her own little private concert! He sang his hit song, “Blue Ain’t Your Color, while holding her hand…a moment she nor her mom will ever forget. Man, I love celeb moments like this!
