Kelly Clarkson made Christmas special for the patients of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville when she paid a visit to the renowned facility, Friday afternoon (Dec. 21). Kelly made the visit through the Musicians On Call Nashville program, which brings music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals and medical facilities. Inside the Children's Hospital Theatre, the newly engaged singer gave a special acoustic performance for the patients, their families and the hospital staff.

The children got into the holiday spirit as Kelly led them in singalongs to "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer," "White Christmas" and other favorites. Following her performance, Kelly visited the rooms of the patients who were unable to attend. "This is such a special time of year and I'm so happy to spend it with all of these great kids," Kelly said in a release. "I'm probably having just as much, if not more, fun than they are."

Kelly joins fellow artists such as Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton and Martina McBride in supporting Musicians On Call Nashville.
