Nine-time Grammy Award winner, Sheryl Crow, made a special trip to Seacrest Studios in Charlotte, NC, on a tour stop with Rascal Flatts.
There were gasps of excitement when Sheryl walked into Levine Children’s Hospital and met with patients and their families. She put on a front row, mini-concert for the crowd that had gathered to see her! What a treat it was to hear some of Sheryl’s famous hits, “Soak Up The Sun,” “Shotgun,” and “Everyday Is a Winding Road.”
Patients thought it was especially exciting to hear about Sheryl’s impressive career – and how much she loved working with Michael Jackson! In a very poignant moment, Sheryl spoke to our patients very candidly about her own battle with cancer. She told patients to keep looking forward, even on the bad days. It inspired everyone who was there to see her.
The “First Cut Is the Deepest” singer took a lot of time getting to know patients, and what they were going through. She even stopped with each parent and shared an encouraging word with them. One of the sweetest parts of Sheryl’s visit was the recording of short videos for patients who were not able to leave their rooms! Each message was personalized to the patient Sheryl was talking to! We all soaked up the sun with this talented singer.
Patients are going to follow her advice and keep looking forward. Thanks, Sheryl!
