RaeLynn partners with Aflac and PEOPLE to create kid-friendly music lounge

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of Country Music's Biggest Night, Aflac hosted a special event, in partnership with PEOPLE, featuring chart-topping artist RaeLynn. The event provided some entertainment for pediatric patients being treated at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. The live performance and kid-friendly music lounge experience was hosted at The Goo Goo Shop and Dessert Bar in Nashville, Tennessee on Nov. 11, 2018.

"I know what it's like to face health challenges as a child, so I'm truly honored and excited to support Aflac in creating this memorable experience today," said RaeLynn, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a child. "There was such a positive spirit at today's event seeing the children and their families have a chance to forget about the tough times they may be having and focus on being a child and laughing, singing and dancing together. Getting to meet these resilient young patients and provide them with entertainment that puts a smile on their sweet faces gives me a great sense of hope. I'm more motivated than ever to help raise awareness for difficult health issues children face, including pediatric cancer, which Aflac has steadfastly supported."
