DigiTour Stars Play ‘Speak Up’ In Seacrest Studios Washington, D.C.

Our favorite stars from Instagram, Musically, Youtube and SnapChat hit the road for DigiTour Winter and made a stop in our nation’s capital! Blake Gray, Weston Koury, Baby Ariel, Mark Thomas, Sophia Kameron, Zach Clayton, and Nathan Triska visited Seacrest Studios at Children’s National and had patients and families smiling the entire time! We kicked off the visit with questions from patients. They all shared what life was like before they were social media stars and how some of their lives changed overnight. Combined they have more than a million followers on social media, but despite their popularity, they all agree that they are typical teenagers. “We like to go the mall, hang out with our friends, be regular teens”, said Baby Ariel.

Patients were eager to watch our new friends play a game of “Speak Up” where Mark and Zach tried to read hilarious and outrageous phrases with a dental spacer in their mouth. The game was such a hit that Mark even asked if he could take the spacer home to play with his friends! They topped off their visit with a friendly challenge of “Dress Up” where they competed to see who could put on a hospital gown, gloves, and mask the fastest. Patients enjoyed learning how much they had in common with the social media stars and we can guarantee that they gained more followers after the awesome visit! Thank you Blake, Weston, Baby Ariel, Mark, Sophia, Zach, and Nathan for taking time out of your tour to visit us at Children’s National!

 

 

 

Rebecca Black And Dylan Dauzat Visit Seacrest Studios During DigiTour Stop

DigiTour stars Rebecca Black and Dylan Dauzat popped in to visit fans at Seacrest Studios at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) while in town for DigiTour’s SlayBells Ice. Both Rebecca and Dylan spoke about having over a million followers on You Tube and Vine….as well as the fun they have creating videos and meeting their fans. Dylan even offered tickets and backstage passes to 3 lucky girls he met in Seacrest Studios. It was a very exciting day at CHOA and we hope to see Rebecca and Dylan again soon!

 

Hayes Grier and Alec Bailey visit Seacrest Studios Charlotte with DigiTour

DigiTour 2015 is sweeping the nation, the internet, and…Seacrest Studios!  Billed as the “World’s 1st social media tour and music festival,” DigiTour 2015 has been playing to packed houses, and screaming fans, across the country.

Seacrest Studios was lucky enough to host two of DigiTour 2015’s biggest stars in Charlotte, NC!  Vine stars, Hayes Grier and Alec Bailey – both North Carolina boys – were welcomed back to their home state by Levine Children’s Hospital and some very enthusiastic fans! With topics ranging from favorite movies to if they have dogs – (they do!) – Hayes and Alec answered all of our patients’ questions.

Both from the same area of North Carolina, these two social media mavericks met years before the DigiTour. Alec played football with Hayes’ brother.  In fact, Hayes’ brother, Nash, is another Vine sensation and friend to Seacrest Studios!

The internet heartthrobs talked about school on the DigiTour.  They still have to do homework and both say lunch and recess are their favorite subjects!

When asked if they get nervous before a show, Hayes said, “The first one I was pretty nervous for, but the second one, I got a little more relaxed.”  Alec said, “I just walk around with my guitar – I get pretty nervous.”  Both boys said, to calm their nerves, they have to stay positive and have their friends around. Good advice whether you are on the DigiTour or going in for a medical procedure!

After a funny game of “DigiWhisperer,” Alec Bailey sang a cover song – One Direction’s “Night Changes.”  Hayes said that it is his favorite cover that Alec sings.

Thanks to the DigiTour stars for including Levine Children’s Hospital on their concert tour stop! We hope for many more visits in the future! You never know – the next big social media star could come right from Seacrest Studios!
