Miss USA celebrates 4th of July with patients at Children’s National!

According to Miss USA 2018, Sarah Rose Summers, this was the best 4th of July yet! She spent her entire evening at Children’s National, kicking off her visit in Seacrest Studios. Patients came prepared for the interview by asking her an array of questions. We even had a studio wide sing-a-long where we belted out a popular song on-air! Following our special on-air segment, we transitioned from the studio up to our outdoor Healing Garden where the party was just starting! Sarah Rose led a dance party with patients to the Cha Cha Slide, posed for photos with superheroes, took advantage of the face painting station, and created awesome crafts with patients. At the end of the night, we enjoyed the fireworks show where we could see fireworks from Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia! When the party was winding down, one patient said “I don’t want this night to end… I hope Miss USA comes back to visit”. It was a memorable July 4th for everyone at Children’s National!



The Unlikely Candidates Perform in Seacrest Studios at Children’s National!

The Unlikely Candidates made their first Seacrest Studios visit to patients and families atChildren’s National in Washington D.C.

DJ $ara, our Seacrest Studios patient correspondent, took over the mics and asked the band some awesome questions! We learned that when they’re on tour, they like to bring a blanket and pillow from home because it brings them comfort when they travel. Patients also joined the band for a fun round of Would you Rather! During the game, we asked would they rather perform a duet with Elton John or have a dance battle with Beyoncé. Their answers were split—half of the band wanting to join Elton John on stage and the other half wanting to dance it out with Beyoncé!

At the end of their visit, The Unlikely Candidates performed their song “Trampoline” live for patients and families. The energy was so strong and so positive in the studio that the guitarist actually broke his guitar strings in the middle of the song!

Thank you for an awesome visit! We hope to see you soon!
