Kelsea Ballerini is a hero — plain and simple.
First, a little backstory. There is a fantastic, little-known non-profit organization called Musicians On Call that is active in 17 cities. Since 1999, the organization has been bringing music to the people that need it most – hospital patients. Recently the organization kicked off their Phoenix division and country star Kelsea Ballerini was one of the artists who helped bring the magic, specifically to sweet little Aspen’s bedside.
Both dressed in blue, Aspen and Kelsea teamed up to sing the mega-hit “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen.” With a smile that stretched a mile wide, sweet Aspen showed no fear as she sang along and eventually took the lead.
“You’re nailing it,” Kelsea told her new duet partner as she backed off and let Aspen shine.
It’s fairly obvious the pint-sized songbird has seen the movie a time or two. While the joy was in the song for her, the gift for us was seeing this gorgeous little girl have a reason to smile amidst her obviously tough fight.
Kelsea didn’t just pop in on Aspen either. Up and down Kelsea’s Facebook page were parents thanking her for stopping by to sing with their sons and daughters and telling her how much of a difference she made.
Hats off to Kelsea for being such a sweetheart and donating her time (all artists of Musicians On Call are volunteers). She made Aspen’s dream come true and shined a light into a sweet little girl’s life. It’s things like this that make people like Kelsea more than a star, they make them heroes.
Now what do you say Aspen, let’s get you better so you can bring that sweet voice of yours to a stage of your own some day.
