Musicians On Call and artists with Universal Music Group (UMG) Nashville shared the joy of live music with patients and frontline workers in hospitals across the state of Tennessee through the “I’m On Call for Tennessee” virtual concert. The concert, hosted by Lauren Alaina and featuring performances by Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, Maddie & Tae, Priscilla Block and Kylie Morgan is available to healthcare facilities statewide for patients and staff to enjoy throughout the month of December.
“We know this has been a hard year for the patients, families and caregivers in hospitals and we wanted to let them know they are not alone, especially as we near the end of the year. We have seen music have incredible physical, mental and emotional benefits for patients and hospital staff throughout the year and we are thankful to have the ability to share some joy across Tennessee with the ‘I’m On Call for Tennessee’ virtual concert,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “We couldn’t have done it without our friends at UMG Nashville and the artists who stepped up to be on call with Musicians On Call.”
The concert is being shared with healthcare facilities through Musicians On Call’s Virtual Bedside Performance Program. The program utilizes video conferencing and livestream technology to bring remote, live music performances from Volunteer Musicians and artist supporters directly to pediatric and adult patients, caregivers and Veterans through intimate one-on-one performances and hospital-wide concerts. This year, more than 75,000 people have experienced music through the Virtual Bedside Performance Program.
The “I’m On Call for Tennessee” virtual concert is sponsored by UMG Nashville and HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health.
