“What You Think About Us” songstress and Curb recording artist Ashley Gearing stopped by Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for a visit this week to lift patient spirits through one of the many bedside performance programs offered by Musicians On Call (MOC).  To the delight of the patients and staff, Gearing entertained room by room with her guitar, powerful voice, and bubbly personality. 

“I have such a passion for both children and music, and was glad to be given the opportunity to use my music to brighten the day of these kids and their families,” shares Gearing.  “Musicians On Call is a special organization that brings music to the people who need it most.” 

MOC artists, volunteers, patient recipients, their families, and hospital staff can all attest to the healing power of music.  The MOC Nashville division began its first program in the spring of 2007 and since has grown to ten programs – playing for more than 46,000 individuals.
