"I'm so sorry you're having a bad night," the singer told the little girl, who was in pain that night. "I'm so happy to talk to you though and I'm so happy you like 'Shake It Off.' You look beautiful tonight, you really do. You're just as pretty as your pictures," Swift told Salinas. 

She also took some time to comfort the young girl's mother. The San Antonio community helped get the star's attention using the hashtag #ShakeItOffJalene on Twitter. You can see some of the touching encounter below.
