Seal is set to headline the 4th Annual Benefit Concert for
Musicians on Call, an event scheduled to take place at the Hard Rock
Cafe in New York’s Times Square on January 29. Concert organizers hope to raise
money for the charity to continue its work in bringing music therapy into
hospitals, and the show will also feature the sibling country
quartet, Jypsi

The Annual Benefit is accompanied by an auction at CharityBuzz featuring over 100 items, such as a Sting
autographed Fender Bass guitar, front row tickets to see
Melissa Etheridge, a Bon Jovi autographed
acoustic guitar, and VIP tickets to the Late Show With David Letterman. The auction ends February 7, though some items will be
auctioned live at the event on the 29th.

Musicians on Call was founded in 1999 with the mission of
bringing live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in
healthcare facilities to enhance the healing process. To date, their
volunteers have played for almost 90,000 people. Musicians On Call
continues their mission through room-to-room hospital performances by
both local musicians and national celebrities, as well as their CD Pharmacies
and Project Playback programs.

The charity has partnered with Hard Rock International
for the concert and auction, and has raised close to $1 million through
its past three benefit events. Items from some of those past events
include a signed 1952 reissued Telecaster from Bruce Springsteen, a harmonica from the Johnny Cash Estate, a
Carrie Underwood package ( which included front row tickets, a meet and
greet, a signed set list, and an article of clothing worn at her show),
time in the studio with Maroon 5, a VIP Grammy Awards Show
package, artwork from John Lennon stamped by Yoko Ono, and
a signed basketball from Justin Timberlake.

“Musicians On Call’s campaign to bring music straight to the bedsides
of patients in hospitals would not be able to continue to expand
without the donations made at our annual event,” said Leslie Faerstein, Executive Director of Musicians On Call. “It’s an exciting
night
made even
more special by a performance by Seal. The impact of this one night
has a profound effect throughout the rest of the year improving the
health and spirits of thousands of patients one by one, bedside to
bedside.”
