    After Florence and the Machine concert in Austin last week, frontwoman Florence Welch stopped by Hospice Austin's Christopher House to visit a teenage fan who was too sick to attend the show. Welch performed "Dog Days Are Over" and "Shake It Out" as the bedridden teen sang the harmonies (astonishingly well) and a small crowd gathered, phones in hand, singing along.

    In a world where so much of the so-called music news we read is comprised of battling egos, lawsuits, and shade throwing, a story like this is a breath of fresh air. Whenever I see an artist harnessing the powers of their music to do some good in the world, no matter how small their cause or audience may be, it never fails to warm my heart. While so many modern celebrity musicians use their fame with destructive intent or for selfish purposes, its reassuring to see a celebrity (especially someone as famous as Florence) act from a place of positivity and take the time to personally show support for their fans. It is how one behaves when nobody is watching that we gain the most insight into their true character. Judging by these clips from this intimate moment between an artist and a fan, we have gotten to see something beautiful in Florence Welch we may otherwise not have known was there.
