During rehearsals for her current tour, Taylor Swift watched videos of the recent devastating tornadoes on the phones of her dancers and musicians. Many of them are from the areas that were hit the worst and were panicked while trying to get in touch with loved ones.

Swift saw this and wanted to do something to help. So she opened up her soundcheck to fans on Saturday, charging them $50 a piece. She raised $750,000 to give to charities helping victims.

Swift said about the impromptu fundraiser, “We had some really scary days a few weeks ago in Nashville. We had tornado warnings and, even scarier, we were at rehearsals and all my dancers and band were getting texts from their relatives. I was just thinking of what we could do to help all the victims of the devastation down there and we were at rehearsals, so I was like, ‘Could we just open up the rehearsal to the public and sell tickets and give it all to… tornado victims in the south?'”

Turned out to be an ingenious idea that will go a long way to help those struggling after the natural disasters.

The next night Swift’s weekend got even better. She went on to win three Billboard Music Awards including nabbing the prize for Top Artist beating out stars like Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
