To close out 2020, some of music’s most iconic artists including Dolly Parton, Kelly Clarkson, Billie Eilish, Leslie Odom Jr., Meghan Trainor, Josh Groban, HAIM, JP Saxe, Pentatonix and more brought the warmth of the holiday season to hospitals across the country! These superstars joined Musicians On Call and long-time partner Citi to deliver joyful music and seasons greetings to patients and frontline caregivers in Hope for the Holidays Presented by Citi.
MOC shared the concert with our hospital partners around the country and we teamed up with the American Hospital Association (AHA) to provide access to 5,000 AHA member hospitals and health systems nationwide. The concert was available on-demand for patients to view throughout the month of December.
“It’s difficult for patients and caregivers to be in hospitals and away from their loved ones during the holiday season. For that reason, we wanted to give them an extra special gift to show them they are not alone and make them smile for the holidays. We believe these messages of hope and festive songs from the biggest names in music will lift their spirits all season long,” said MOC President & CEO Pete Griffin.
Citi continued its long-standing relationship with Musicians On Call as the presenting sponsor of the concert. Additional sponsors included Amazon Music, Dollar General, American Hospital Association, Catherine Cate Sullivan, Brendan and Jean Black, Tina Pray, SoundExchange and Loeb & Loeb.
“We are deeply moved to support Musicians On Call for this performance, in a year where the healing power of music is greatly needed across the country,” said Carla Hassan, CMO of Citi. “I have seen firsthand how Musicians On Call performances can mean the world to patients and families alike. We hope that the songs provide an endless source of holiday warmth for all those who watch.”
