Carrie Underwood Makes a Teens Wish Come True
Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood gave a very special gift to a teen fan with a brain tumor on Saturday. Carrie met with 18-year-old Haley Gort before her concert in Jacksonville, Florida.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation flew Haley and her mother, Jodi Gort, from Michigan to Florida for Carrie Underwood’s concert with help from the organization’s Wishes in Flight program. Carrie donated backstage passes for the two and took photos with Haley. The teen’s mom calls her daughter a “crazed fan” of the country singer.
Prior to meeting Carrie, Haley’s Twitter page tagline read: “I LOVE Carrie Underwood. My goal in life is to meet her, and it will happen.” Now the tagline has been changed to read: “I LOVE Carrie Underwood. I met her on April 20th 2013 and she has tweeted me twice!”
