To help families affected by devastating tornadoes across the southern states, singer Taylor Swift turned a rehearsal into a benefit concert.

Swift offered 13,000 tickets to fans for the Nashville dress rehearsal for her upcoming "Speak Now" tour -- and streamed the event online.

The concert raked in over $750,000 for tornado victims.

Swift told Access Hollywood,

"It was such a wonderful night and I'll never forget it -- the fact that that many people on last minute's notice wanted to come out and pay for their tickets and donate that money to them."
