Kelsea Ballerini, reigning ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year, has lent her time and voice to a very special cause—Musicians on Call, a non-profit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients.
Taking a break from the Rhythm & Roots Tour with Rascal Flatts, Kelsea headed to Phoenix to help launch the Bedside Performance Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital—a first for the hospital and 60th launch overall for the organization. While there, Kelsea performed for patients and families and personally met with children who were unable to make it to her performance.
“Musicians on Call is truly an inspiring organization and the smiles that they ring to patients and families is immeasurable,” Kelsea said in a statement. “To be here, in Phoenix, and a part of the launch of a brand new program is a real honor.”
Musicians on Call currently brings music to patients in 20 cities, including New York, Miami, Nashville, Dallas, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Denver, Baltimore and Atlanta, and it has reached the milestone of playing for 500,000 patients, families and caregivers, allowing them to launch its Half A Million Moments Campaign.
