Black River Entertainment artist Kelsea Ballerini joined Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, to bring the healing power of music to patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Friday. A longtime MOC supporter, Ballerini performed for patients, families and caregivers in the hospital’s Zone area before visiting with patients who were unable to make it to the lobby. Kelsea took the time to visit patients while on the Rhythm & Roots Tour with Rascal Flatts.
“Musicians On Call is a truly inspiring organization and the smiles that they bring to patients and families is immeasurable. To be here, in Phoenix, and a part of the launch of a brand new program is a real honor,” shared Ballerini.
MOC currently brings the healing power of music to patients in 20 cities including New York, Miami, Nashville, Dallas, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Denver, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Denver, San Francisco and Atlanta. MOC has also just reached the milestone of playing for half a million patients, families and caregivers and launched its Half A Million Moments Campaign.
