Former Bonnaroo Music Festival Headliner: Florence + The Machine Visits Sick Fan In The Hospital

Karinya Chen is a 15-year-old patient at Hospice Austin's Christopher House, living with a rare form of cancer called paraganglioma. Karinya had tickets to see Florence and the Machine, but ended up not being in good enough shape to make it. But what she got was much better: Florence Welch and Florence and the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd brought the show to her. You can watch the entire encounter in the player below. Florence + The Machine performed at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2015. Make sure to check out our coverage of this year's festival in the next coming weeks.
