While Luke Bryan was in New York promoting the release of his sixth studio album, What Makes You Country, the 41-year-old singer stopped by a New York Hospital to sing and bring cheer to patients.
Luke made his first stop at Lennox Hill Hospital with Musicians On Call, meeting staff and patients and performing hits like, “Huntin,’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Everyday” and “Play It Again.” Musicians on Call is a non-profit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.
“I think Musicians on Call, just the whole fabric of what it’s about—me being a musician, being able to participate but then knowing that this is going on in so many hospital rooms across the country and knowing that this is spreading so much love and joy and making so many people hopefully have a better day,” Luke said in the video.
In addition, Luke unveiled MOC’s Music Pharmacy program, with the help of Bose and Pandora, to present patients with Bose headphones and tablets—equipped with Pandora Plus subscriptions—allowing them to listen to streaming music from their bedsides. The Georgia native went room to room delivering the equipment and listening to music with patients.
“Musicians On Call is proud to have music icon Luke Bryan with us to unveil our Music Pharmacy program, which uses technology specifically geared towards improving patient mood and experience,” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Thanks to our partners Bose and Pandora, we can offer patients an opportunity to access the healing power of music in between our weekly live performances in their rooms.”
Lenox Hill is the first of 60 hospitals that will receive this new program over the next year.
