Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities across the country, honored seven-time Grammy Award winning group Lady Antebellum with the Music Heals Award at an exclusive invitation-only event at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville last night. The event, part of Musicians On Call’s Half A Million Moments campaign, celebrating the organization’s milestone of performing for half a million patients, families and caregivers, raised over $100K to help continue to spread the healing power of music. The intimate night, hosted by iHeartRadio on-air personality and MOC Board Member Bobby Bones, celebrated the talented trio and featured surprise performances by Lindsay Ell, Hunter Hayes and Eric Paslay who all performed some of their favorite Lady A songs.
The Half A Million Moments Celebration last night also honored outgoing National Board Chair, Scott Welch with the Leadership in Music Award, Volunteer Guide, Richa Chandra, and Volunteer Musician, Laura Eady for their hard work and dedication to helping deliver the healing power of music with MOC. The Half A Million Moments Celebration was thanks in part to sponsors LadyAID, City National Bank, Genentech, CAA, Onsite Workshops, UMG Nashville, Adams & Reese LLP, ASCAP, Grand Ole Opry, Hard Rock International and Hard Rock Heals, Red Light Management, RIAA, SESAC and Warner/Chappell Nashville.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our milestone of reaching half a million patients, families and caregivers in hospitals then a night like this with our greatest supporters and champions,” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Charles, Dave and Hillary of Lady A have been huge supporters of our program personally and their music has been a staple at our Bedside Performance Programs, always delivering the healing power of music to the patients who hear them.”
