While Prom may have to look different for teens who find themselves in pediatric hospitals rather than on the dance floor with their friends, Musicians On Call (MOC) brought the joy, celebration and music of the season directly to them by hosting the Musicians On Call Prom Presented by Men’s Wearhouse. National brands and popular recording artists partnered with MOC to create a unique Prom experience exclusively for children’s hospitals nationwide.
TikTok star and 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Pop Artist Jax, dressed in trendy Prom styles from Men’s Wearhouse, hosted the Prom virtual concert, which featured performances, well wishes and Prom stories from TWICE, Maisie Peters, Alec Benjamin, Frawley, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Hello Sister, King Calaway, Georgia Webster, BIZZY, The Band Light and more. The concert was available for pediatric patients nationwide to enjoy in their hospital rooms throughout the Prom season
Monument Records recording artist Walker Hayes also brought the Prom party to pediatric patients at The Children’s Hospital at TriStar Centennial in Nashville during a special bedside program. With photo props, crowns and corsages in hand, Walker visited with patients to perform his smash hit “Fancy Like,” and captured keepsake photos of special moments with the patients. He even had nurses doing the viral dance in the hallways.

“The music is a big part of what makes Prom memorable for teens all over the country, and we are thrilled to have so many artists joining us in creating the perfect soundtrack for patients who have to spend this season in the hospital,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin, “Thanks to the continued support of our partners at Men’s Wearhouse, and artists like Jax and Walker Hayes, these patients get to enjoy their own Prom experience with lasting, positive memories.”
Patients at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland were given the VIP treatment with rented styles from Men’s Wearhouse. With the help of a Men’s Wearhouse stylist, the patients were fitted for suits to wear to their own hospital Prom celebrations.
“We are honored to partner with Musicians On Call to bring the joy of Prom to pediatric patients across the country,” said John Tighe, President, Tailored Brands. “At Men’s Wearhouse, we believe that every teenager deserves to have an unforgettable Prom. We recognize the incredible work that Musicians On Call does in bringing music and positivity to those in healthcare environments, and we are proud to support their mission. This partnership is a natural fit for us, and we look forward to continuing to make a positive impact on the lives of these patients through the power of music.”
