Each time a celebrity takes time to meet kids at Seacrest Studios it’s special. They are once-in-a-lifetime meet-and-greets in an unlikely place – a children’s hospital. And a recent visit from country singer-songwriter Wade Bowen truly left a mark on us and the sweet patients he met. While the Seacrest Studios is filled with fun moments, having to stay in a hospital is, of course, filled with hard moments. But Wade helped turn a tough day into a memorable one at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. Keon, Haritha, Gage and Izayah all sat right next to Wade to help interview the star. Emma and Alyssa called in from their hospital rooms to join the conversation.
Wade shared about how he started his music career and how he turned his passion into a full-time gig. Keon, 17, shared about how he enjoys playing his guitar while he’s here in the hospital. He told Wade that the singer-songwriter inspired him to pursue music and practice each day. Gage, 8, asked Wade how many songs he has written and which one was his first song and which was his favorite. Wade said the first song he ever wrote was for his college roommate’s girlfriend. And his favorite song was a song he wrote for his two boys, “Before These Walls Were Blue.” The kids were all ears when Wade pulled out his guitar to sing that song. Wade took pictures with all the kids and signed autographs. But before he left, he made sure he got an autograph from Keon and wished him good luck in his musical career. Thank you Wade Bowen for visiting Seacrest Studios!
