A new music therapy room at a hospital on in Florida is to be named after AC/DC singer Brian Johnson in recognition of his charity work.
The singer has been a major supporter of a campaign to raise money and buy music equipment to provide music education for children at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Johnson – who was born in England, became lead singer of the Australian rock band in 1980, and now lives in Sarasota – has been raising cash for the new facility through the John Entwhistle Foundation, named after the late bassist for The Who. The foundation equips hospitals with facilities, equipment and resources to help sick children recover through music.
Johnson is expected to take time out from the current AC/DC tour to attend the naming ceremony at the hospital on December 22.
