Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities, is hosting its 20th Anniversary Kick-Off Celebration in Nashville on Friday, May 31 at the CMA Theater featuring Blake Shelton. The event will celebrate the organization’s 20th anniversary of delivering the healing power of music nationwide and will feature a headlining performance by Blake Shelton and an opening set from Cale Dodds.
“Over the past 20 years, we’ve brought the healing power of music to over 700,000 people in hospitals nationwide. A single song has the ability to lift a patient’s spirit unlike anything else and science has proven that music does actually help patients heal,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin said in a release.
“It’s been an honor to bring this experience to facilities nationwide and we could not have done it without the support of our community, volunteers and artists who generously give their time and talents to brighten someone’s day, especially champions like Shane Tarleton, Charlie Cook and Lauren Alaina. What better way to celebrate this milestone than with music icon, Blake Shelton!”
Shane Tarleton, longtime MOC supporter and SVP of Artist Development for Warner Music Nashville will be recognized as the organization’s first Lifetime Achievement Award. Others to be recognized are Charlie Cook and Lauren Alaina.
The celebration will begin with an exclusive VIP reception at the CMA Theater, followed by performances by Dodds and a full-band set from Shelton. A limited number of tickets are available. Tickets can be found at www.musiciansoncall.org/MOC20.
