Keith Urban makes wish come true for dying Ohio fan

Keith Urban visited his “number one fan” before a concert in Toledo, making a wish come true for a 25-year-old woman entering hospice.

Marissa English, who was born with multiple health issues including an inoperable cyst in her brain, also suffers from cerebral palsy and severe scoliosis, local media reported. English had tickets to Urban’s show in Toledo on Thursday, but she was unable to attend the concert.
