Taylor Swift's Story
Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Taylor Swift is one of pop's top recording artists, having had roots in the world of country music.
Born on December 13, 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania, Taylor Swift's family moved to nearby Wyomissing where she started crafting songs at age 5, and at age 16, released her debut album. Hits like "Love Story" and "You Belong With Me" appealed to country and pop fans alike and helped fuel the multiplatinum success of her albums, with Fearless the 2009 top-seller. Swift later became a pop juggernaut with the 2014 album 1989. She has won many awards, including several Grammys, and modeled for Cover Girl.
Being the biggest pop star on the planet clearly isn't enough for Taylor Swift -- she's additionally made a name for herself through her good deeds, whether that be generously paying fans' hospital bills, donating to flood victims or giving emergency on-point fashion advice days before prom.
