People revealed the singer had fun during the making of her album. She said people will hear it in the songs. Don’t Forget Me is an “intimate reflection on the legacy” created through relationships.

Line of Best Fit reported Rogers, alongside Phoebe Bridgers, covered “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls in 2020. In 2022, they re-released the cover and raised $75,000 in 24 hours, which they dedicated to the Brigid Alliance. The organization provides travel, food, lodging, child care, and other logistical support for those seeking safe abortion. 

Bridgers and Rogers first raised funds with their cover for Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action, which advocates for suffrage rights and fair elections. 

Their “Iris” cover had 18,185 downloads and was available on Bandcamp for a “pay-what-you-want price.”

The singer also pledged support for reproductive health care efforts apart from abortion clinics. She raised $17,500 from merchandise sales and donated to the Yellowhammer Fund, according to Billboard.

Rogers’ song, “Give a Little,” also intended to spread empathy after the national school walkout for gun control in 2018.

“Give A Little” is a song about empathy.

Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department will debut on April 19 with 16 tracks, with collaborations from Post Malone and Florence + The Machine. She announced four CD and vinyl variants for the album as well, with four different bonus tracks: “The Manuscript,” “The Bolter,” “The Albatross,” and “The Black Dog.”

The 14-time Grammy winner announced her 11th studio album when she received her 13th Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album in February. The singer emphasized that the number 13 brought good things in her life. 

Swift has achieved so much in the span of her more than 18 year-career, not just musically, but also philanthropically. A report from Billboard enumerated the times where she spread nothing but kindness to a lot of her fans as well as non-government organizations. She showed support to animal organizations, flood victims, pandemic relief operations, donations to food banks and other charities.

A report from CNN mentioned Swift is also a longtime supporter of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. She also launched the Taylor Swift Education Center in 2013, which offers a myriad of programs for students and visitors of all ages.

Aside from these, CNN added she donated guitars to auctions that benefited the GRAMMY Museum. Her philanthropic endeavors extended to the LGBTQIA+ community and other crowdfunding efforts.
