“Musicians On Call” – Bringing Music to Hospital Patients and Caregivers
“Musicians On Call“ [MOC] is an outreach-based organization that is dedicated to bringing “live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.” This program reaches across the United States and is a light in the midst of dark times.
During this season of COVID-19, the need for MOC is greater than ever before. Jason Derulo has chosen to participate in the organization’s mission by performing an online concert for hospital patients and staff. Other artists have participated too, such as Darius Rucker [pictured below], Sia, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, and many more.
“Musicians On Call is the nation’s leading organization delivering the healing power of music, serving individuals in facilities ranging from children’s hospitals to adult facilities, VA hospitals and hospices.” [musiciansoncall.org].
About the organization, singer Kelly Clarkson says, “Being involved with Musicians On Call has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I consider it a great gift to be able to share music and bring smiles [. . .] It is healing for us all and I can’t wait to do it again!”
