Kelly Clarkson Helps Raise A Record-Breaking $106,000 for Musicians On Call Nashville

Musicians On Call Nashville - Kelly Clarkson

On November 14th, Musicians On Call (MOC) Nashville held their 6th Anniversary Celebration presented by Citi with the help of multi-genre superstar Kelly Clarkson. The 3-time Grammy Award winner played an intimate show to a sold-out crowd at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville.

Clarkson helped raise over an impressive $106,000, marking the night as the highest-earning event ever for MOC Nashville.

“When I first learned about MOC, it appealed to me for so many reasons,” shares Clarkson. “I love how it creates opportunities for musicians to play for kids and bring music to the families who are spending their time, especially during holidays, in the hospitals away from the comfort of their homes.”

As always, Clarkson shined and wowed the crowd with her talent and personality as she performed some of her biggest hits as well as a few songs from her new Christmas album, Wrapped In Red. True to her generous spirit, Clarkson also donated her 2012 American Music Awards performance dress to Hard Rock Cafe for display in its world-famous memorabilia collection in exchange for a $9,000 contribution to MOC Nashville.

MOC expanded to Nashville in April 2007, and has continued to grow ever since. The branch now has 12 weekly programs within 7 area healthcare facilities, and its volunteers have played for more than 70,000 patients, family, and staff.

“This is by far the biggest event to date for Musicians On Call Nashville,” said Dana Sones, MOC Nashville’s Program Director. “We are beyond grateful to Kelly Clarkson for donating her time and talent to help celebrate our sixth anniversary. This event not only celebrates how far we’ve come in six short years, but allows us to expand our programs to bring music to even more individuals in the years to come.”

The night also included a VIP cocktail reception and auction bidding, including autographed items from Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, and Tim McGraw.

All of the proceeds from the 6th Anniversary Celebration directly benefit MOC Nashville and its mission to bring music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.

Needless to say, a night very well spent… a wonderful event by an amazing organization! Thank-you to MOC and Kelly Clarkson for bringing the gift of music to those who need it most.
