MUSICIANS ON CALL, a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities across the country, kicked off a first-of-its-kind, four city Rock The Room Tour in NASHVILLE last week raising over $130,000 with the help of some of the biggest names in Country music including REBA, MARTINA MCBRIDE, KELSEA BALLERINI, CHARLES ESTEN and honoring WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE VP/Creative Director SHANE TARLETON.
The next stop on the tour will be LOS ANGELES, with an event to be held TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1st at Greystone Manor that will honor PHIL GUERINI, VP/Music Strategy DISNEY CHANNELS WORLDWIDE and GM at RADIO DISNEY NETWORKS with a “Golden Ukelele” for the Leadership in Music Award. The event will also honor longtime MOC advocate RACHEL PLATTEN with the Music Heals Award for her volunteer work performing for patients at over 50 MOC programs.
"I have volunteered for MUSICIANS ON CALL for the past 12 years because of the incredible one-on-one experiences in hospital rooms when no one other than the patient and I would remember the love that was exchanged,” said PLATTEN. “It's amazing and an honor to be recognized for the fulfilling work I get to do. Music truly heals, and I am so grateful to have learned that through MUSICIANS ON CALL."
"RADIO DISNEY is proud to join forces with MUSICIANS ON CALL to deliver the healing power of music to the bedsides of patients across the country,” said GUERINI. "I am deeply honored to receive this Leadership In Music recognition on behalf of RADIO DISNEY for the work that we've done, and are doing, and the important work still ahead of us to bring the healing power of live and recorded music bedside to more patients, children's hospitals, adult facilities, VA hospitals and hospices, with the help of our family of Artist supporters and Corporate Partners."
“We’re delighted to be hosting our first event in LOS ANGELES, a community that has really embraced our programs over the years,” said MUSICIANS ON CALL Pres. PETE GRIFFIN. “The Rock The Room Tour is already exceeding our expectations and it’s going to be a special night honoring our L.A. champions RACHEL, PHIL, KENLI and DANIELA, and hearing intimate performances by such talented rising stars as TORI KELLY and RACHEL PLATTEN."
