Taylor Swift gives $50,000 in song proceeds to NYC schools
New York City’s official booster Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to the city’s public schools.
The city tourism bureau tapped Swift as “global welcome ambassador” last year, even though critics noted she was a recent transplant to New York.
Some also complained that her song “Welcome to New York” from the album “1989” was bland and lifeless.
Swift responded by announcing last October that she would donate proceeds from the single to the city’s schools.
