Keith Urban visits hospitalized fan after Mercy nurses start social media campaign

The Blade learned earlier in the day that the family and nurses of Marissa English, a 25-year-old fan who was born with a number of health conditions, were attempting to reach Urban in advance of his trip to Toledo.

Marissa's in-home nurse, Jackie Codding, told WTOL she knew Keith's visit would mean the world to her.

In front of a sold-out concert Thursday, Urban said he got to meet who he now believes is his "biggest" fan, "a attractive girl named Marissa".

The Australian country singer serenaded gravely ill fan Marissa English at Mercy Health St. Vincent Hospital on Friday.

According to CBS News affiliate, WTOL, it took a minute or two for English to register that Urban was there for her, where he spent a total of 45 minutes and belted out "Blue Aint' Your Color".

WTOL reports Keith mentioned Marissa during his concert, saying he believes she is his greatest fan.
