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!

Lucy Hale Talks Music And TV At Seacrest Studios

Written Recap by Seacrest Studios Intern Jaclyn Cutler
Video Recap by Seacrest Studios Intern Alexis Dicicco

Lucy Hale stopped by Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC) to chat with patients and talk about Pretty Little Liars.

Lucy strolled into the studio and introduced herself to the many fans waiting to meet her.  Three lucky admirers got to share the mic with the country singer and ask her a few questions!

Growing up in Tennessee, Lucy knew she always wanted to make music.  She took inspiration from Disney movies, and later, the Spice Girls and Britney Spears.  Together with her sister, she used to make music videos and write songs, which led her to American Juniors, where she first met Ryan Seacrest, almost 12 years ago!

Lucy’s first love has always been music, which is apparent when you listen to her debut album Road Between. But she also loves the time she has spent as Aria on Pretty Little Liars. Lucy says she’s a lot like Aria, and so felt naturally drawn to her character.

It was so great having Lucy in studio, we are still smiling from her visit!
