Leading into the weekend, all four members of the Eli Young Band dropped by the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte North Carolina, to visit with patients. While at the hospital the band enjoyed being interviewed by several of the patients themselves in the Ryan Seacrest Studio.
In an effort to give patients something to look forward to and for some, a career path, Ryan Seacrest is committed to building studios at Children’s hospitals across the country for patients to use. “We are grateful for the Eli Young Band taking time on their tour to stop by our Seacrest Studios at the Levine Children’s Hospital to bring some excitement and smiles to patients,” said Meredith Seacrest, Executive Director & COO of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
“It was incredible to see these kids experience something so cool. Music is an outlet for them as they go through hard times that most of us couldn’t imagine,” said Mike Eli, lead singer for the band. “The studio lets them forget their illness for a little while. We were ecstatic to be part of it.”
