"St. Jude is not just a hospital, but the Disneyland of hospitals," said songwriter Overcash. "The time, energy, and boundless love they share with their patients and the families is incredible. As a member of a St. Jude family, I have never felt such immense love as the love these doctors, nurses, and researchers have for their patients."
Proceeds from the evening benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, whose research has changed how the world treats children with cancer and other diseases. For more information, visit StJude.org.
