Christian musician Lauren Daigle recently offered a virtual concert for patients and staff of a Children’s Hospital in Tennessee.
Grammy Award-winning artist Lauren Daigle recently performed a virtual concert for the patients and staff of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Nashville. The concert hosted by Lauren was a part of the Gratitunes campaign of Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The virtual event featured six songs by Lauren, which includes hit songs “You Say” and “Still Rolling Stones”.
“To all the first responders, to all those working on the frontlines in the hospitals, to everybody working behind the scenes in the hospital, to the patients and the families that have been affected immensely by the time we’re living in, I would just like to say my best to you, all my love for you. You’re in our prayers and you’re in our thoughts,” Lauren said in the video introduction.
The president of said hospital expressed his gratitude to Lauren and other artists who became a part of the virtual concert.
“We’re incredibly grateful to Lauren Daigle and all our friends in the music industry for the outpouring of support for our staff, nurses, doctors, patients, and families, particularly during these unprecedented times,” said Meg Rush, MD, MMHC.
The special event broadcast was viewed by over 1,200 patients and staff of the hospital.
“Music has always been an integral and important part of the fabric of our hospital, with visits in person, and now virtually, from artists like Lauren, and through organizations like Musicians On Call,” Meg added. “Lauren’s healing and inspiring performance uplifted us all and brought smiles to children’s faces.”
