This summer iHeartMedia and Ally hosted “iHeartRadio Concerts For The Community Presented By Ally” – a virtual concert series benefiting Musicians On Call. The three-part concert series featured performances by Andy Grammer, Aloe Blacc and Julia Michaels. As part of the series, each artist surprised caregivers around the country with a virtual meet & greet and performance as a token of appreciation for their work on the frontlines.
In addition to the virtual performances, iHeartMedia and Ally helped bring the gift of music to dedicated healthcare heroes who have been staffing hospitals nationwide during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the program, Ally committed to fund the delivery of up to 5,000 virtual eCards to frontline workers nationwide. Each card featured an inspiring and uplifting video recorded by Musicians On Call’s Volunteer Musicians.
