Maddie & Tae Support “Shine Bright” Campaign For Children’s Hospital

Maddie & Tae Shine Bright

Maddie & Tae have premiered a special performance of “Fly” in a music video that supports Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The duo are artist ambassadors for the letter-writing campaign “Shine Bright,” presented by the Children’s Hospital and Nashville Predators.

The “Shine Bright” effort aims to encourage the hospital’s patients, families and caregivers. Participants can write letters during upcoming “Shine Bright” dates and booth locations in Nashville, including Bridgestone Winter Park (Jan. 23), Vanderbilt Men’s Basketball vs. Florida (Jan. 26), and Centennial Sportsplex (Jan. 28-30).

“Seeing the light and joy in the eyes of the patients we were able to sing and play with would brighten anyone’s day,” says Maddie & Tae’s Tae Dye. “Knowing people find something encouraging in this music is the greatest gift we can be given.”

“And supporting the ‘Shine Bright’ campaign, especially interacting with the patients and caregivers at Children’s Hospital has been one of the most rewarding things we’ve done,” adds Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Marlow. “Knowing this special version of ‘Fly’ will also encourage people to write letters of support is the icing on the cake.”
