Singer Taylor Swift marked her 24th birthday on Friday (13Dec13) by offering up a $100,000 (£66,700) donation to officials at the Nashville Symphony in Tennessee.

Bosses in charge of the city orchestra have struggled with financial issues all year, so the generous I Knew You Were Trouble hitmaker decided to hand over an early Christmas gift.

A representative for the Nashville Symphony confirmed the news on the group's Twitter.com page on Friday (13Dec13), writing, "We are profoundly grateful for @TaylorSwift13's donation. Thank you, Taylor, for supporting musicians & music in MusicCity! Happy Birthday!"

The charitable gesture is not the first for the singer - in 2012, she pledged $4 million (£2.6 million) to the Country Music Hall of Fame, and in October (13), the Taylor Swift Education Center in Nashville opened as a result of the donation.
