Musicians On Call is at it again — bringing the healing power of music to hospital patients who are unable to leave their respective facilities to enjoy live public performances. This time, the wonderful organization teamed up with Southwest Airlines and Red Bow Records/BBR Music Group recording artist Brooke Eden to entertain patients, families, and caregivers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. During her time at Vanderbilt, Eden sang her inspirational debut song “American Dreamin’.”
Eden’s participation was the first of three performances that MOC will team with Southwest to host. Together with MOC’s Bedside Performance Programs, Southwest has initiated its Medical Transportation Grant Program to provide complimentary, roundtrip tickets to nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation organizations to benefit patients who need to travel for specialized medical care.
Eden couldn’t contain her excitement about having the opportunity to give back to the community by participating in the MOC program.
Working with Musicians on Call has been a dream of mine for so long and I am so happy I finally got to be a part of this amazing organization. Being able to talk with the patients and share joy through music was an experience I will never forget. I am so grateful to Southwest and Musicians on Call for making this happen!
Later that evening, Eden performed for a packed 3rd and Lindsley at NASH Icon’s Rhythm and Boots series, benefiting Musicians On Call. Curb Records recording artist Lee Brice, Musicians On Call’s first volunteer in Nashville, headlined the show.
