The celebration, held at Espace in New York City, honored two notable supporters of the nonprofit, Grammy-winning artist Kelly Clarkson and Charlie Walk, Republic Records Executive Vice President, along with volunteers Sandy Lyon and Jeremy Bar-Illan.
Republic artist Jessie J and Island Records artists Nick Jonas and Shawn Mendes.performed for star-studded guests including: Pete Wentz, Nick Lachey, Hoda Kotb, John Varvatos, Wyclef Jean, Flo Rida, Elvis Duran, and Rosanna Scotto.
The event celebrated the organization’s 15 year history of bringing live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. Since the organization’s inception, Musicians On Call has expanded to 15 cities across the country and performed for nearly half a million people.
“We are incredibly grateful for the unwavering support of Kelly Clarkson, Charlie Walk, and our amazing volunteers,” said Pete Griffin, President of Musicians On Call. “The record-breaking donations received last night will allow us to bring more music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals as we expand our programs and increase our reach to those who need it most.”
