Fifth Harmony alum, and rising solo artist, Ally Brooke, visited Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee with her neon yellow jacket shining as brightly as her personality. From the start of her visit to the end, she brought smiles and laughter to the studio as she shared stories from her time in Fifth Harmony and during her solo career. She shared patients’ questions and played a game titled “Low Key, High Key,” named after her own hit single, “Low Key.”
Throughout her interview, patients asked questions ranging from “Do you like pineapple on pizza?” to “If you could make a song with any artist, whom would you like to collaborate with?” As it turns out, Ally Brooke does like pineapple on pizza, though she truly prefers a pizza loaded with pepperoni, mushrooms, and peppers. With the latter question, our guest had an answer that might be surprising to some! Confidently, Ally Brooke stated that Post Malone was at the top of her list of desired future collaborations. Not skipping a beat, the pop star then hinted at a debut album that is currently in the works, with new music and more collaborations to come!
Following the interview, the studio got together to play a game of “Low Key, High Key,” where Ally Brooke and patients gave their “low key” and “high key” favorites of various categories! For instance, when the category was fast food, Ally Brooke shared that her “high key” favorite fast food was unabashedly Chick-fil-A. After revealing this, many of the patients echoed her sentiments and chimed in with their own favorite fast food restaurants as well!
At the end of her visit, the superstar spent time at the back of the studio signing autographs and taking photos. As a special bonus, Ally Brooke even signed the stroller of a patient’s little sister! With a laugh, she shared that the stroller was indeed the first stroller she had ever autographed.Ally Brooke was an incredible guest, and positive light, during her time in Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and we were honored to have her visit. As she continues on her journey as a solo artist, we hope she knows that there are patients, family, and friends here in Nashville cheering her on along the way!
