Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, and Pandora celebrated Veterans Day by delivering the healing power of music to fourteen VA facilities nationwide.
In Atlanta, MOC hosted Capitol Records Nashville’s Jon Pardi, one of country music’s fastest-rising newcomers. Jon Pardi took a stop from his national Me and My Kind Tour with Kip Moore to brighten the day of Veterans by performing his #1 hit, “Head Over Boots.”
“It was an honor to spend time today with the Veterans who have given so much of their lives and time serving this country,” said Jon Pardi.
Additionally, artist Matt Nathanson joined MOC and Pandora to visit the Veterans at San Francisco VA Medical Center, while Epic Records’ Wrabel stopped by a Los Angeles facility.
“At Musicians On Call, we like to think every day is Veterans Day which is why we are so proud of our year round music programs serving Veterans across the country, ” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Veterans Day is a special opportunity to shine a light on the service of these wonderful men and women, and highlight our amazing volunteers and partners, like Pandora, who are committed to use music as a tool to help Veterans heal. It’s an honor and a privilege to serve our Veterans, and MOC is committed to serving many more as our programs grow in new cities.”
The Veterans Day special performances were a part of MOC’s Half A Million Moments campaign, celebrating MOC’s milestone of playing for half a million patients, families and caregivers. For more information on MOC visit www.musiciansoncall.org
