Keith Urban teamed up with Musicians on Call to bring an intimate performance to patients at a Nashville Children’s Hospital on Wednesday (Feb. 1).
Musicians on Call “brings live and recorded music to the besides of patients in healthcare facilities.” This year, the non-profit is celebrating their 10th anniversary. According to Taste of Country, they surprised children at Nashville’s TriStar Centennial Children’s Hospital with the talented Aussie to commemorate the big milestone.
Urban played acoustic versions of his hits “Wasted Time,” You Look Good in My Shirt,” “Somebody Like You” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” It was a magical moment for both the kids and their families.
“The power of music to not only connect people, but to bring comfort into someone’s life is something quite divine,” Urban explained in a release. “Visiting with these kids and their families yesterday was truly inspiring, as was the chance to play for them and bring a little light to their day, even if for a few moments. I’m very grateful to Musicians on Call for the good work they do and honored to be a small part of that.”
Sam Hunt, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum are among the country artists who have worked with the nonprofit Nashville organization. Lady A’s 2016 invitation-only event honored the trio at Music City’s Hard Rock Cafe and raised over $100,000 for kids in need.
