Black River Entertainment and ACM Award winner Kelsea Ballerini joined Musicians On Call to bring the healing power of music to patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital yesterday. 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. Performing her hits including current chart-topper “Peter Pan,” and her two number 1 hits “Dibs” and “Love Me Like You Mean It,” Ballerini brought smiles to everyone’s faces during her visit.
“We’re so excited to have Kelsea here to support the launch of our 60th Bedside Performance Program and first Children’s program in Phoenix,” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Throughout the years Kelsea has been a huge supporter of ours. Kelsea’s fun music and energy always brightens the days of these patients.”
MOC’s expansion to Phoenix Children’s Hospital is thanks in part to support from ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.
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.
