“They, like, lit up. It’s really great to be able to have those moments.”
The kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles got a nice surprise recently when pop superstars Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas showed up to give them a private show. After greeting several kids and taking lots of selfies, Lovato performed her song “Confident,” with Jonas on guitar. Jonas then launched into one of his songs, “Jealous,” which led to hand claps and a bit of dancing.
Lisa Cies, a Child Life Specialist from CHLA, said it was a fun change of pace for the kids: “When they’re in the hospital for so much, they think they’re left out from a lot of ‘normal’ things, whether it’s school, seeing their friends – but they got their own concert here today.”
