Teen Who Used Taylor Swift's Music To Get Through Dad's Passing Surprised With Concert Tickets

A teen who used to bond with her father over Taylor Swift – whose music then helped her through his tragic passing – could not hold back her tears of joy when she was surprised with a pair of tickets to see her show for the first time. In the wholesome video, 16-year-old Bella Martin becomes hysterical with excitement, fighting back happy tears at the magnitude of the surprise. Bella, from Sacramento, California, has always been a huge fan of Swift's music, performing her songs in talent shows in elementary school and playing them on repeat. Surprisingly to Bella's mom, Veronica Guzman, 45, her dad, Francisco Martin III, also grew to love Swift's music, singing along with his daughter the car, declaring their favorite song of hers "Mine." But in April 2019, age just 37, Francisco was in a tragic motorcyle accident, which saw him placed into a coma for two weeks before his life support was switched off. Through those tough times, Bella continued to listen to Swift's music, and Veronica built up a new bond with Francisco's girlfriend, Dana, after he passed away. The pair knew how much seeing Swift would mean to Bella, and so they teamed up to try and get presale tickets for her show in Levi's Stadium, San Francisco, in July 2023, before surprising Bella with them.
