Carrie Underwood Visits Hospitalized Children
Country superstar Carrie Underwood took time out of her busy schedule to visit sick children in Boston earlier this week.
Underwood partnered with music station WKLB to make the visit happen, and spent time autographing CDs for the kids. She also sang an a capella rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” at the request of one 2-year-old patient.
The kids weren’t the only ones blown away by the visit. Underwood was very impressed with a musically gifted girl named Chloi, and gave her a shout out on Twitter.
“Met a brave young lady and fellow songwriter today named Chloi. Such a positive spirit! So sweet!” wrote Underwood, who also linked to a YouTube video of Chloi singing in the hospital.
WKLB Program Director Mike Brophey had nothing but praise for Underwood.
“We are so grateful to Carrie for partnering with us to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to the children and families at Floating Hospital.
“This is a very special opportunity for us to participate in a small way in the healing process of the hospital’s pediatric patients, and the generosity of country performers like Carrie Underwood is what makes it possible,” he said.
