Kelsea Ballerini and Musicians on Call (MOC) visited Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Friday (July 22) to kick off the organization’s first children’s program in Phoenix. The launch also marks MOC’s 60th bedside performance program overall. A longtime MOC supporter, Ballerini performed for patients, families and caregivers in the hospital’s Zone area before visiting with patients who were unable to make it to the lobby.

Musicians on Call is a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. Their expansion to Phoenix Children’s Hospital is thanks in part to support from ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music.

“Musicians On Call is a truly inspiring organization and the smiles that they bring to patients and families is immeasurable. To be here, in Phoenix, and a part of the launch of a brand new program is a real honor,” said Ballerini.

“We’re so excited to have Kelsea here to support the launch of our 60th Bedside Performance Program and first Children’s program in Phoenix,” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Throughout the years Kelsea has been a huge supporter of ours. Kelsea’s fun music and energy always brighten the days of these patients.”
