Musicians On Call: Delivering The Healing Power of Music
The world hears so many stories about boorish and selfish behavior from entertainers that it's nice to know when the opposite is true. Musicians On Call is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing both recorded and live music to patients' hospital bedsides. The goal is to bring a little joy to those who are too infirm to leave their beds and maybe facilitate the healing process at the same time. The organization is getting widespread support from national recording artists. James Taylor, The Bacon Brothers, John Mayer, Rob Thomas, Seal, Nils Lofgren, Maroon 5, and Chris Daughtry, Chicago, Darius Rucker, and many more have all generously donated their time to raise money or visit patients.
