Longtime volunteer and friend of MOC, Rachel Platten, made a special visit to UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica for a memorable Bedside Performance Program! Patients were eager to hear her play her classic and inspiring tunes like “Fight Song” and “Stand By You” right at their bedside, one-on-one.
Before her platinum selling hits, Rachel was a regularly scheduled Volunteer Musician for over a decade. In 2015, she was honored in Los Angeles to celebrate her dedication to the healing power of music. This is what she had to say at that time:
I have volunteered for Musicians on Call for the past 12 years because of the incredible one-on-one experiences in hospital rooms when no one other than the patient and I would remember the love that was exchanged.
Thank you, Rachel, for your continued dedication to the healing power of music!
Friday, August 18th marks Musicians On Call’s 18th birthday! Be sure to check our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see all the memories we’ll be sharing, or celebrate with an $18 gift!
