Live performances don’t get much more heartfelt and intimate than this.

Members of the band Jared & The Mill played a set Saturday afternoon in the hospital room of one of their fans, 18-year-old Mason Endres, who was injured in a car accident at SXSW on Thursday. Because of the accident, Endres wasn’t able to attend the performance of the band, so the band decided to pay her a special visit.

“We played the songs she wanted to hear,” the band’s singer, Jared Kolesar, 23, told Mashable. “It was a very heavy feeling in the room because of everything she has been through — heavy and inspiring.Her parents were really emotional. She’s just as much our friend as she is our fan.”

Mason said in an interview that she plans to get Jared & The Mill lyrics tattooed on her when she’s well.

“I think the pure excitement of everything has gotten me through today,” Mason said Saturday. “I felt better than I ever imagined I thought I would feel in a hospital.”
