Musicians On Call has announced a virtual concert, “Hope For The Holidays,” to bring cheer to patients, families and frontline healthcare workers.
The charity is teaming up with Citi to present the concert that will be shared with its network of hospitals across the country, as well as 5,000 other hospitals and health systems.
The event will see several artists, including Kelly Clarkson, Dolly Parton, Shawn Mendes and Billie Eilish sharing holiday messages.
Leslie Odom Jr., Meghan Trainor, Josh Groban, HAIM, JP Saxe and Pentatonix are scheduled to perform at the virtual concert.
The concert will be available on-demand for patients to view through this month.
“It’s difficult for patients and caregivers to be in hospitals and away from their loved ones during the holiday season. And with the growing restrictions from the pandemic, this year will be the hardest of all,” Musicians on Call President and CEO Pete Griffin said in a statement.
“For that reason, we wanted to give them an extra special gift to show them they are not alone and make them smile for the holidays,” he added. “We believe these messages of hope and festive songs from the biggest names in music will lift their spirits all season long.”
