Local Musicians Perform Song Together to Lift Spirits

Cincinnati musicians collaborate with Cincinnati Children’s to perform “Lean On Me”

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

When Cincinnati Children's asked local musicians to collaborate for an uplifting project to make patients, families and employees feel good during an uncertain time, dozens of them pulled through.

They performed "Lean On Me" from their living rooms. 

At Cincinnati Children's, we know we don't carry the burden of this tough time alone. 

Cincinnati musicians are among those showing us we have each other to lean on.
