Before his show at the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, N.C., Luke Bryan stopped by Levine Children’s Hospital to perform “Kick the Dust Up” for his young fans who are patients at the facility.
Levine Children’s, hailed as one of the best children’s hospitals in six different specialties by U.S. News & World Report, uploaded a clip of Bryan’s singalong to Facebook. Even though it’s a short video, viewers can quickly see how important music is to the kids (and their supportive parents) surrounding Bryan as he pauses for them to take over and sing the lyrics they know by heart.
Bryan’s performance took place inside of Seacrest Studios, a special addition made to the hospital in 2013 by the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. In this broadcast center with locations across the country, kids have access to microphones, cameras, green screens and radio equipment. They can come in to watch and/or participate in productions taking place within the studios, or they can tune in from their rooms to request songs or ask questions during interviews. Michael Bublé, Selena Gomez and Imagine Dragons are among other big-name musical artists who have visited the center.
This isn’t the first time that Bryan has dropped by one of Seacrest Studios. In 2015, he visited another location inside of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. A longer video of the singalong was recorded at this particular event, displaying Bryan’s big heart and the excitement surrounding his visit within the studios that provide such an important, uplifting addition to the hospital.
Luke Bryan is currently on his What Makes You Country tour with dates through October 25 in the U.S. and Canada. After the extensive tour, Byran will take a short break and then head over to Mexico for a series of dates in January.
