Taylor Swift is turning her last tour rehearsal into a benefit to raise funds for tornado victims in the U.S. before she heads out on a new trek around the globe.

Nearly 300 lives were lost when severe storms swept across America last week and Taylor has vowed to help by inviting more than 12,000 fans to join her for a show in Tennessee on May 21st.

The event, called Speak Now… Help Now, will give fans a glimpse of the superstar's new world tour before it officially kicks off in Nebraska on Mat 27th. Swift tells the Associated Press, "I was watching the coverage of the tornadoes backstage at rehearsals, and I wanted to do something for the families affected by the damage. I've never opened a rehearsal to the public before, but I felt that inviting my fans to the last rehearsal for the Speak Now tour would be a great way to raise money.

"We will probably still be doing some fine-tuning to the show that night, since this will be a true rehearsal, but I feel like it is so important for me and my fans to help if we can."
