Seacrest Studios Opens At Children’s National in Washington, D.C.

The Ryan Seacrest Foundation is thrilled to open Seacrest Studios today at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington D.C.  We are so excited to share this broadcast media center with the patients and their families, and we hope it contributes positively to their healing process.

To celebrate the launch of our ninth Seacrest Studios, we invited our friends Lucy Hale, Cam, Katie Ledecky and Robin Thicke to help Ryan with the first broadcast.

In addition to spending time with the patients, Cam entertained the crowd with her acoustic rendition of Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson‘s “Uptown Funk.” During her live performance, the country singer-songwriter tossed to Robin, who triggered laughter with his vocal improvisation of the track’s funky beat.

RSF ambassador Nick Jonas, who is busy promoting his Future Now tour with Demi Lovato, was unable to attend the ceremony, but he made sure to send his love via Twitter.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the day, or follow along on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be a part of the fun!

Star of Disney’s ANT Farm Sierra McCormick visits Seacrest Studios!

Sierra McCormick, who plays Olive Doyle on Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm,” made an exciting visit to Seacrest Studios at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. She chatted about how her character has grown over the seasons, her acting roles before she snagged “A.N.T. Farm,” and her infamous shrines of famous celebrities.

Sierra’s character Olive has an eidetic (photographic) memory, which means she can remember everything she has ever read, seen or heard.

“I learn quite a bit from playing Olive because of all of the interesting facts she has to memorize,” she said. “It’s more fun to play someone who is not like me.”

James Franco and Adam Levine are just a few of the celebrities that have adorned the walls of her dressing room. The Wall of Franco sported both James and his brother Dave, the Levitt Ledge was home to Joseph Gordon Levitt, and the Levine Shrine was devoted to “The Voice” judge and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

Patients and visitors were so thrilled to meet Sierra as she sat down with them to sign autographs and take pictures. She even spent time with patients at their bedside if they were unable to make it down to the studio. One patient enjoyed her conversation with Sierra so much they went through tons of topics, which spanned from the Tower of Terror at Disneyland to Harry Potter. She even did the Miley face with one of the patients!

Thank you to Sierra for truly making a memorable visit to Children’s Hospital of Orange County and Seacrest Studios. We had so much fun!
