Watch Florence + The Machine perform for ill fan at hospice

Florence + The Machine treated a fan to a private performance after she couldn't make one of the band's gigs due to ill health.

Florence Welch and guitarist Rob Ackroyd attended Hospice Austin in Texas to serenade the 15-year-old girl.

She had tickets to see the group perform in Austin, but the patient was unable to attend.

Welch and Ackroyd ran through 'Dog Days Are Over' and 'Shake It Out' for the girl.

A caption for a video taken by the hospice reads: "Today we were privileged to witness the clear joy of a room full of teenagers singing with Florence Welch and guitarist Rob Ackroyd from Florence and The Machine who came to Hospice Austin's Christopher House to give a private concert to a teen who missed her concert last night due to her illness.

"The room was full; full of joy and warmth and love and life and singing. Thank you, Florence!"

"Hospice Austin's 15-year-old patient had long planned to go see Florence and the Machine with her BFF at the Austin 360 amphitheater.

"She was bitterly disappointed when her health prevented her from attending. So Florence came to her at Hospice Austin's Christopher House. Thank you, Florence, for your loving kindness, and for making our patient's day."
