There were smiles for miles when Niall Horan popped into Seacrest Studios to visit patients and families at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta before iHeart’s annual Jingle Ball. The popular singer talked about how much fun he’s having on the Jingle Ball tour and how excited he is to be heading home to Ireland for the holidays. He looks forward to getting together with his buddies for their annual soccer tournament for charity the day after Christmas (they already have their special jerseys made for the occasion).
When asked what he likes about Atlanta, he was quick to mention the southern hospitality and his newfound love for cornbread! He enjoys playing golf and going to watch his friend, Rory McIlroy in the Masters. Patients loved asking the good-natured singer all sorts of questions, like “What’s Your Favorite Sound?” Answer: white noise, “Do you have a girlfriend?” Answer: No, and “What’s your most prized possession?” Answer: His guitar.
The crowd cheered when Niall jumped in to join a young patient in the “one-armed floss.” Comments like “that’s the best visit we’ve ever had!” could be heard as patients were heading back to their rooms. Thank you Niall for such an awesome early Christmas present!
