On Monday, July 8, 107.5 The River hosted its STAR PARTY at Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville, a benefit show featuring rising star musician, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

All of the proceeds from the night went towards Musicians on Call (MOC), an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. The event raised over $22,500 for the Nashville branch of MOC – which is more than enough to fund one of its 11 weekly Bedside Performance Programs for a full year.

Sheeran received an overwhelming ovation from the sold-out crowd for his solo-acoustic set which included hits “The A Team” and “Lego House,” as well as fan favorites like the energetic “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You.” The GRAMMY-nominated Brit rocker has developed a strong following in the U.S. with back-to-back sold out headlining tours and countless national television appearances. Sheeran is currently supporting Taylor Swift on her North American RED Tour.

Through benefit concerts, live and online auctions featuring concert experiences and memorabilia from The Black Keys, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Darius Rucker, Gene Simmons, Sheeran, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and more, MOC Nashville has received over $65,000 in recent weeks to go towards programs in Middle Tennessee. MOC Nashville anticipates the announcement of an additional weekly Bedside Performance Program to open later this year.
