Taylor Swifts Beyond Perfection Tribute Moves Ronan Mom to Tears
The heartfelt lyric video for ‘Ronan’ from ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ inspired by a four-year-old boy who died of cancer is dubbed ‘so painstakingly perfect’ by his mother.
AceShowbiz –Taylor Swift has released a touching lyric video for her “Red (Taylor’s Version)” track “Ronan” after getting the OK from the family of the four-year-old boy who inspired the song.
Ronan was initially released as an iTunes-exclusive charity single to honour Maya Thompson, the mother of little Ronan, after he lost his battle with cancer. The song’s lyrics are inspired by Thompson’s blog, Rockstar Ronan – and she is credited as a co-writer on the track.
According to one of her blog posts, Swift asked for her permission to include “Ronan” on Red (Taylor’s Version), and make a new video.
After watching it, Thompson took to Twitter and wrote, “I just listened AND watched Ronan, Taylor’s version. I couldn’t tell you about the music video until now. It is beyond perfection and I can’t wait for you all to see it.”
“@taylorswift13 You are one of the greatest loves of my life. TY (thank you) for loving him… Forever ours, thanks to @taylorswift13. I am sobbing It is so painstakingly perfect.”
The video opens with footage of Ronan saying “I love you” to his mother and ends with a link to the Ronan Thompson Foundation.
To celebrate her latest album reboot, Taylor Swift joined the stars of her new 10-minute short film “All Too Well” for the project’s premiere in New York on Friday afternoon (12Nov21).
She posed for photos with Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink outside the AMC Lincoln Square 13, hours before the film debuted online.
Swift re-recorded “All Too Well” for her new album “Red (Taylor’s Version)” and decided to add more verses as she chronicled her romance and break-up with a mystery older man, believed to be ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal.
A lyric video was posted online overnight, but the actual video will air on YouTube at 7pm ET on Friday.
During a Thursday night appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” when Taylor announced the premiere, she revealed she was “blown away” by Dylan and Sadie’s performances, insisting she would not have made the film if either of them had said no.
Swift directed the short film.
