Ciara Surprises Patients At Seattle Children's Hospital With Sweet Christmas Carols
Ciara is definitely in the holiday spirit with this sweet gesture.
Ciara has joined forces with the Why Not You Foundation and Amazon to visit the Seattle Children’s Hospital to bring some much-needed holiday joy to the little patients. The “Level Up” singer made her surprise visit to the hospital on Thursday (Dec. 20).
“Visiting Seattle Children’s is a family affair for us,” she told the families at the hospital. “And, visiting during the holidays and spending time with everyone here is truly one of my favorite times of the year.”
The 33-year-old mother of two sang a number of Christmas carols to the children like, “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” She was also joined by musician Preston Pohl from The Voice and Seattle Children’s chief executive officer, Dr. Jeff Sperring.
In addition to her group performances, the singer also visited the patients who are unable to step out of their rooms. The special occasion marks the second consecutive year the Grammy-award winning artist has visited the hospital. Last year, she and Kelly Rowland made a pit spot and sang for the children.
“You guys really are the superheroes, I want you all to know that,” Ciara told the kids this time around.
The Why Not Foundation was started in 2014 by Ciara's husband Russell Wilson in efforts to help empower the youth and motivate them to strive for success. At the top of 2017, Ciara visited the hospital to give the children much-needed makeovers.
“Every time I visit Seattle Children’s, I see how strong these children are who are going through such difficult battles,” Ciara said, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I wanted to help make them feel as strong and beautiful as they are to me and to let them know I’m thinking about them. I often hear that I inspire these kids, but they’re really the ones that inspire me. They are the real superheroes of today.”
