AJ Mitchell performs for patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Fresh off his performance on the TODAY show, singer songwriter and social media sensation, AJ Mitchell, popped into Seacrest Studios and performed for patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta! Here to promote his new EP, Hopeful, the 17-year old talked about how exciting the last couple of years have been since moving from his small town in Illinois to Los Angeles to pursue his career as a recording artist and songwriter.

Having started piano at age four, it was no surprise to his parents that by age six, Mitchell has already written his first song — featuring a little bird. He even sang a verse or two before performing “I Don’t Want You back” and “Girls,” both on his debut EP. AJ hopes to go on tour next year, and we hope Atlanta will be one of his stops! Best of luck to this rising star, and thank you for visiting us in Seacrest Studios!

 

Miss USA, Sarah Rose Summers, visits Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta!

And the winner is….

Seacrest Studios at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta! We scored big time with a visit from the beautiful and talented, Miss USA 2018, Sarah Rose Summers! Just two moths into her reign as Miss USA, Sarah Rose felt right at home in a hospital setting – a place she’d become familiar with earlier in her career as a certified Child Life Specialist. She was an instant favorite among patients and families.

She encouraged questions from the audience, citing it was “practice” for her upcoming Miss Universe pageant in December, and for the “talent portion” of the visit, Sarah Rose promptly volunteered to learn – and participate in –  the popular dance move coined “the floss” with an excited patient.

Many pictures, autographs, hugs and smiles later Sarah Rose is headed back to NYC. Thank you so much for visiting Seacrest Studios a second time! We are honored you want to visit all ten, and cannot wait to cheer you on in the Miss Universe pageant!

 

A “Glee” filled visit with Darren Criss!

The end of June brought a big visit to Seacrest Studios at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta!  Darren Criss, most notable as Blaine from Fox’s hit series “Glee”, came to chat with patients, play a fun game, and take pictures and sign autographs.

Darren is actually touring alongside fellow “Glee” cast member Lea Michele – the pair performed at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center following his visit at Seacrest Studios!

One special patient, Sarah, played Jimmy Fallon’s “Whisper Challenge” with Darren. Hi wore headphones, listening to really loud music, while she mouthed Disney quotes, and he had to guess what she was saying.

Patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta loved having Darren in studio, and we hope he returns soon!
