Sabrina Carpenter Performs Her Newest Song “Why” at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital!

Recap written by Studio Intern: Isabelle Hanson

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center witnessed just why Sabrina Carpenter is the Ryan Seacrest Foundation’s celebrity ambassador during her visit to the studio. Sabrina’s personable and sweet personality shined through as patients interviewed her before she performed her newest and favorite song, “Why”.

An actress herself, Sabrina said she hopes to act with Emma Stone in the future, one of the many actors on her growing list. But, her true celebrity crush as a young girl was Zac Efron.

When Lauren asked the inspiration behind her song, “Thumbs”, she said we all go through times where we feel we are not living the life we want to, but we must start listening to our own voice.

We learned Sabrina would be living her best life if sweets were at the top of the food pyramid, after patient Jerra asked how she would redesign the pyramid. An overwhelming majority of the studio audience agreed to having a sweet tooth, too. She may eat kale salad for lunch, but goes for the chocolate cake right after.

“When one door closes, another door opens,” is Sabrina’s life motto. She said working hard while staying optimistic is important. “There are so many times where things will happen and we don’t know the reason why. And then a year later we’ll look back and we know the reason why. And it’s because it was making room for something else to happen that’s better for you and that was meant for you,” said Sabrina.

Thanks, Sabrina, for visiting Cincinnati Children’s Seacrest Studio and supporting the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you again soon!

 

 

Charlie Puth Sings ‘Only One Call Away’ For Patients in Atlanta

Patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently welcomed Charlie Puth to Seacrest Studios! Charlie got all the patients’ attention by performing two of his hit singles “Attention” and “One Call Away” on an impressive setup, featuring his signature red keyboard.

He then talked about how he has perfect pitch (he’s a big stickler for it!). He shared that his brain automatically identifies musical notes in everyday life. While he was talking, a patient’s IV pole beeped, and he informed us that it is at a perfect C sharp.

When asked what his favorite candy is, he provided us with a new recipe involving mixing Butterfingers and Reese’s Cups into one chocolately stew. But he said he has to be careful of how many sweets he eats, so that he can physically keep up with his tour mate Shawn Mendes.

The patients loved meeting Charlie and getting their pictures with him. Come back anytime, Charlie, we are only One Call Away.

All Smiles With Jet Jurgensmeyer in Seacrest Studios Atlanta!

We were lucky enough to have Jet Jurgensmeyer (star of Disney Channel’s Adventures in Babysitting) join us in Seacrest Studios Atlanta! Having just visited the studio in Nashville, Jet was excited to meet and chat with patients in studio. He shared with us a couple of new projects he’s working on, and talked about how he splits his free time between Tennessee, California, and Michigan. He even told us how close he still is with his Adventures in Babysitting cast members, including RSF ambassador, Sabrina Carpenter!

Like his good friend Sabrina, Jet is a singer, too. He just really started playing guitar a few years ago, but he blew us all away by singing us a cover of his favorite Twenty-One Pilots song. Maybe one day soon, Jet will come back to visit us as a pop star, instead! After leaving the studio, he told us he would be attending a Braves game, so obviously we gave him a tomahawk to help cheer on ATL! We were so excited to have him stop by, and we’re counting the days until he comes back to see us.

Selena Gomez Surprises Patients At Seacrest Studios!

RSF ambassador, Selena Gomez, surprised patients at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC when she made an unannounced stop, on a Sunday afternoon, at Seacrest Studios just before her concert at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

Patients crowded in to hear Selena talk about her Stars Dance tour.  Gomez told patients all about packing for a long tour, her travel schedule, and being on the road with her opening act – Emblem3!  Selena told fans that, where she’s from and who she surrounds herself with helps keep her feet on the ground.  She also mentioned that if she could have any talent in the world, it would be to be a good cook!

To the delight of our animal-loving patients, Selena revealed that she has 6 dogs waiting for her at home! Her dog’s names are Chip, Fina, Wallace, Willie, Baylor, and Chaz.

Selena’s down-to-earth personality and warm visit put patients at ease.  What a fantastic Sunday surprise for Levine Children’s Hospital! Thanks Selena for the great surprise!
