Chili Fujii, a devoted fan of Taylor Swift, organized a heartwarming surprise for the singer during night two of the 2024 Eras Tour at the Tokyo Dome. As fans eagerly awaited the concert, Fujii planned to distribute 500 sheets of paper with a special message to those with floor seats. Each sheet bore the words “Karma is the queen on the stage!!” – a tribute to Swift’s song “Karma.”
In addition to the message, a QR code on the sheet directed fans to a linktree website with instructions in Japanese and English. The website provided a printable banner and a video tutorial, explaining the fan project. The mission was for fans to hold up one side of the paper during the show-closing song “Karma,” and then flip it to reveal the message “We’ll stand by you forever” during Swift’s song “Long Live.”
When asked about the surprise, Fujii expressed overwhelming love and admiration for Swift, saying, “I really, really love you Taylor.” She even gave permission to post an emotional video on TikTok in hopes that Swift or her team would see it.
Following the Tokyo concerts, Swift was set to continue the tour with more shows in Melbourne, Australia. The fan project in Tokyo showcased the unwavering support and love Swift receives from her dedicated fan base around the world.
The touching gesture by Fujii and fellow fans highlights the deep connection between Swift and her audience, emphasizing the impact of the singer’s music on people from different corners of the globe. The outpouring of love and support for Swift serves as a testament to the power of music in bringing people together and fostering a sense of community and belonging.
