The Band Perry recover from power loss in concert

The Band Perry.

The Band Perry was well into their spirited set last week at Ohio State University performing their smash “All Your Life” when the generators unexpectedly blew out leaving the band in darkness.  That is until the crowd pulled out their cell phones and created enough light for the show to go on.  The superstar sibling trio followed up with their cover of “I Will Always Love You,” and shortly thereafter light returned.

“We never know what’s going to happen when we step on stage,” said Kimberly Perry.  “One show I’m throwing bits of my shredded dress into the audience, and another we’re playing under the cell phone spotlight,” says Kimberly Perry.
 
“We’ already play a cover of Queen’s ‘Fat Bottom Girls’ in our set and after last night we may need to prepare a cover of Meat Loaf’s ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’ except ours would be called ‘Paradise by the Cellphone Light’” said Reid Perry.
 
“The OSU students definitely lit up the house in more ways than one!  They were great and they were with us all the way!” says Neil Perry.
OSU STUDENTS LIGHT THE WAY FOR THE BAND PERRY.

Two members of Lady Antebellum took time off of their busy schedules to visit patients at Kravis Children’s Hospital in New York as part of Musicians On Call (MOC). Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley gave an intimate performance which included their own songs, and some favorite kid-friendly tunes. Their acoustic set was broadcast on Mount Sinai’s KidZone TV, and they answered questions from the children in attendance. The group also made a donation to LadyAID, their charity, and MOC. LadyAID is their foundation, which was founded to raise awareness and generate support for the plight of children locally, nationally, and globally who cannot help themselves.

After their performance, Dave and Charles visited children at their bedsides in the pediatric unit who were unable to attend the performance. Check out the pictures below of their performance and let us know what you think of their new album “Golden” which was released earlier this week.

The Christmas spirit was alive and well when the multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson stopped by Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt yesterday afternoon to sing and celebrate the season with patients, staff and families through Musicians On Call (MOC) Nashville.

Clarkson, who recently released her Greatest Hits – Chapter One album, visited with the children and performed an acoustic set in the Children’s Hospital Theatre.  The songstress led the packed room in a sing-along of her favorite holiday carols including “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer,” “White Christmas,” and “All I Want for Christmas is You.”  Clarkson encouraged singing and dancing, and the children were happy to oblige.  Following the show, the kind-hearted entertainer generously offered to visit the rooms of patients unable to attend.

“This is such a special time of year and I’m so happy to be able to share it with all of these great kids. I’m probably having just as much, if not more, fun than they are,” exclaimed Clarkson.  “I heard about Musicians On Call from a friend of mine,” she continued, “and I thought this would be the perfect way to get involved with a hospital music program here in Nashville.  I love playing for the kiddos!!”
MOC Nashville is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year and since its inception, the Music City branch has grown to provide 11 weekly bedside performance programs throughout six area healthcare facilities and has played for over 60,000 patients.  With the help of artists like Clarkson, Brantley GilbertHunter HayesMartina McBrideJerrod NiemannKellie PicklerDarius RuckerBlake Shelton, and so many more, MOC Nashville will continue to expand its reach within the Nashville community and deliver the healing power of music to those who need it most.
