CURB/NASHVILLE artist LEE BRICE and RCA/NASHVILLE’s CHRIS YOUNG treated patients and families to a special performance this week at MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL AT VANDERBILT in NASHVILLE and presented the hospital with more than 30 ZUNE devices. The portable media players were loaded with the artists' music, and will be given as birthday gifts to teenaged patients who are hospitalized.
"We are extremely grateful for the support of LEE BRICE and CHRIS YOUNG, as well as the generous support of MICROSOFT and its employees," said LUKE GREGORY, CEO for the hospital. "The performance was deeply meaningful to our patients and their families, and we are so thankful for LEE BRICE and CHRIS YOUNG for sharing both their talents and their time. In addition, the ZUNE media players are perfect birthday gifts for our teenaged patients, who, like many of our patients, celebrate life's milestones while facing difficult medical treatments. The gifts will not only help normalize the hospital experience for them, but also offer a great deal of joy on their special day and throughout their stay here."
BRICE and YOUNG also signed autographs and visited with patients and their families.
