Sabrina Carpenter Performs ‘On Purpose’ For Patients At Seacrest Studios Dallas

I love being able to tell our sweet patients that, yes, one of their favorite super stars is coming to see them right here in the hospital! I knew Sabrina Carpenter was interested in visiting to our Seacrest Studios at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas and right before we nailed down the date and time, I was spending time visiting with one of my little friends who has frequent and lengthy hospital stays.

Ariana, who is seven, loves to interact with the Seacrest Studios. When she’s admitted here in the hospital, she usually can’t leave her room which means we bring the fun to her through our tv channel and by stopping by to see her. She loves to play Bingo and is always gracious for the prizes she wins like little ponies and stuffed animals.

The week before Sabrina came, she asked me if any celebrities were coming soon (her last hospital stay she got to talk to Keith Urban!) I asked her who she’d like to meet and told her, “I hear Sabrina Carpenter will be in town next week, should we invite her?” Her eyes widened and her head nodded up and down showing a big YES! I played it cool and told her I’d reach out and see if she could stop by, wink wink.

When we had the date and time confirmed, she was the first one we told! She almost couldn’t believe it! Since she wasn’t able to leave her room and join the crowd in the Seacrest Studios, we set her up to do a live video stream from her room so Sabrina could see her and talk to her, too. Ariana stroked her toy pony’s hair and asked Sabrina what she likes to do when she’s bored.

Several other patients got to sit next to Sabrina in the Seacrest Studios and ask her all their questions about her music and her roles on Girl Meets World and Adventures in Babysitting. It was so cute to hear the kids ask about specific scenes they remembered and ask their new friend about what was going on behind the scenes.

Right before Sabrina arrived we played her music in Seacrest Studios, and Jackee June requested her song “On Purpose.” That’s the song she ended up playing for the kids – a live, rendition of the song Jackee June had just requested! What a memorable moment!

After the interview, Sabrina signed an autograph for every kid who came by, and extras for those who couldn’t. She hugged many of the kids and took plenty of selfies with her fans. When the crowd cleared, she got to talk with Ariana again through the video conference. Ariana loves the app Musical.ly and is an expert at making fun videos set to music. She asked if Sabrina could make a musical.ly video with her and the two lip-synced and danced together to make an awesome clip!

When a celebrity such as Sabrina comes to visit Seacrest Studios, the impact goes far beyond the hour or so they are there. The anticipation leading up to the event is a positive distraction from the hospital world and the memories they make during the visit are the details they share with friends and family about their time away from home. And every now and then there’s the once-in-a-lifetime musical.ly to replay over and over again!

Thank you Sabrina for loving on our friends here in Dallas! We’ll see you next time!

 

Sabrina Carpenter Sings For Patients In Seacrest Studios Philadelphia

Written by: Seacrest Studios Volunteer, Kevin Shirley

Seacrest Studios at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) welcomed another exciting celebrity guest, Sabrina Carpenter! Sabrina sat down with the patients to discuss singing, acting, and her local connection.

While Sabrina has spent the last three years acting on a TV sitcom, she came back to her home state of Pennsylvania for her original passion, music. The Bucks County native expressed her excitement to play a hometown show in Bethlehem, PA. Sabrina also looked forward to a Hershey Park concert, and reminded everyone she would be sure to grab a few chocolate bars on the way out.

Sabrina also took some time to reflect on her experience acting in Girl Meets World. She talked about growing up with her character Maya; she is glad to be able to learn from Maya, while also using her own life experiences to help her play the character. Sabrina is proud to work on Girl Meets World. She sees the cast and crew like her own family, and she also credits the show for teaching kids great life lessons.

Before signing autographs, Sabrina sang “Eyes Wide Open” from her first music album of the same title. She is currently working on her second album, and we can’t wait to see what she has to offer in the near future. CHOP would like to thank Sabrina for visiting the studio and hopes she stops by agains soon!

Sabrina Carpenter paid a special visit to Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She sang her hit song, “We’ll Be the Stars,” and dished about what it’s like to be part of the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie, Adventures in Babysitting. Fun fact: we found out that Sabrina has never actually babysat in real life! Sabrina is best known for her role as Maya on the Disney Channel show, Girl Meets World, saying she feels a strong connection to this character having played her now for over three years.

Being so accomplished at such a young age, a lot of kids wanted to know how she became an actress. Sabrina had great advice for any aspiring actors or actresses saying that it is important to remember that “as an actor you get told no a lot before you get told yes,” so always make sure you work hard and are determined, and “know who you are and what you’re capable of no matter what anyone says.”

In addition to acting and singing, Sabrina has been dancing since the age of two, admitting that she gets it from her mom and older sister. Superfan, Leah, asked Sabrina who her dream duet partner would be. Having trouble picking just one, at first she said Ed Sheeran after hearing he stopped by Seacrest Studios Colorado last summer, but then Sabrina also said Adele, saying she was “one of my first inspirations in music.”

Before she sang her song, “We’ll Be the Stars,” Abby asked her what her favorite song was to jam out to, explaining that she loves “Classic” by MKTO. Sabrina agreed that “Classic” is a fun song and shared that she’s also been dancing to Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s song, “This Is What You Came For.”

 

Sabrina sang her hit song with her sister, Sarah, while sisters and mega fans, Maya and Leah, sang and danced along. Sabrina then played a favorite game of Seacrest Studios Colorado called Backwards Forwards, where she was challenged with saying the phrase “Eyes Wide Open” into the mic, trying to replicate the phrase backwards. Getting VERY close to saying the backwards phrase perfectly, Sabrina can now add this game to another one of her many talents.

Before taking pictures and signing autographs with everyone who came out to see her, Sabrina had one last piece of advice saying, “I know you all have dreams and aspirations and it means the world to me…that I can be a person in your life that hopefully can bring you some happiness…I love you guys all so much!”

We love you too, Sabrina! Thank you so much for stopping by and chatting with us, we had a blast!
