Kelly Clarkson has a huge heart.
On Thursday, November 14, Clarkson helped Musicians On Call (MOC) Nashville raise over $106,000, making it the highest-earning single event ever for the branch. In a rare, intimate setting for the superstar, Clarkson performed to a sold-out crowd at Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville for the MOC Nashville sixth anniversary party presented by Citi.
"When I first learned about MOC, it appealed to me for so many reasons," shared 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."
In addition to generously giving her time and talent, Clarkson 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. That was beyond sweet of her, wasn't it?
"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."
