Musicians On Call: Delivering The Healing Power Of Music

Normally Bloggerhythms takes pride in its carefully written and thought out prose but today's short post is an exception. Instead, because it's Thanksgiving, I'll let the video below do most of the talking to spread the word about Musicians On Call (MOC), a non-profit organization that began their noble mission twenty years ago. MOC is dedicated to bringing both live and recorded music to patients' hospital rooms.

The world hears so many stories about boorish and selfish behavior from entertainers that it's nice to know when the opposite is true. The goal is to bring a little joy to those unfortunate people who are too infirm to leave their beds and maybe facilitate the healing process at the same time.

MOC is getting widespread support from national recording artists, classic and current. Many are major stars. Here are just a few who have generously donated their time to raise money or visit patients. Among them are James Taylor, The Bacon Brothers, John Mayer, Rob Thomas, Seal, Nils Lofgren, Maroon 5, Chris Daughtry, Chicago, Darius Rucker, Bruno Mars, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley, Def Leppard, Norah Jones, The Black Keys, Tim McGraw, Sting, and many, many more. They have all contributed to MOC's success.

Please share this post with as many people as possible.
