“I’ve been following the work of Musicians on Call for almost a decade and have been a huge fan of all their contributions. Having them partner with some of the industry’s most talented artists to play for those who are down on their luck is truly a gift. How could we not support this cause?” said Elvis Duran. “I’m honored to have even been considered for The Leadership in Music award and even more touched to be honored by an organization who I consider dear friends.”
“Musicians On Call is so grateful for Elvis Duran and the iHeartRadio family, who have been tireless supporters of our mission to use music as a healing power since we first started bringing music to hospitals in 1999,” said Pete Griffin, MOC President. “Elvis is such a beloved member of the community and we are excited to be joined by so many friends, supporters and businesses to honor him and celebrate his generosity and passion for helping others.”

Volunteers and supporters came out in droves to share their stories of their favorite moments bringing music to hospitals using #MOCMoments, and helped to raise funds and support for MOC serve the next half a million people.
