Musicians On Call For a Song

Last Thursday, Kelly Clarkson, the singer who went on to fame after her American Idol win, raised over  $100,000 during the annual  Musicians On Call (MOC) fundraiser in Nashville.

Since 1999, the nonprofit MOC has performed for over 400,000 hospital patients in an effort to provide them with "just what they need," according to the group's website.

Clarkson told Country Weekly, “When I first learned about MOC, it appealed to me for so many reasons. 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.”
