Taylor Swift released a music video for the song “Ronan,” an iTunes-exclusive charity single that honors Maya Thompson, the mother of a 4-year-old boy who died of cancer. The lyrics are inspired by Thompson’s blog, Rockstar Ronan, and she is credited as a co-writer on the track. Swift asked for Thompson’s blessing to include “Ronan” on the Red (TV) rerelease, Thompson wrote in a blog post. She thanked Taylor for never forgetting her son and for her heart “made of pure gold.” Thompson tweeted early Thursday about the music video, thanking Taylor once more. The video opens with a clip of Ronan saying “I love you” before turning into a slideshow of photos, and ends with link to the Ronan Thompson Foundation.
