You put so much thought into it. And you put so much spirit into it. I can not wait to meet you guys. You have no idea how excited I am.”
It was also announced on “GMA” that the “Welcome To New York” singer has partnered with NYC & Company to become the city’s global welcome ambassador for tourism. In the promotional clip appearing on nycgo.com, Swift paid homage to the city she now calls home. “What makes New York City, New York City is that it is unlike anywhere else in the world,” she said. “It’s almost like the city has its own heartbeat. You can find fashion that inspires you, art that inspires you, humanity that inspires you. Everywhere you look, it’s impossible not to fall in love or be affected by something in New York City.”
