A few of us just got to New Orleans for Voodoo Music Experience. We have sponsored the event for the past 8 years because, as a company, we believe that music and art are a very important part of life.
We spent Thursday morning at the New Orleans Children’s Hospital outfitting the kids with PlayStation gear and having some good old fun playing SingStar and Buzz. I learned today that Destiny’s Child’s, “Survivor,” is one popular SingStar tune.
Abigail from our Corporate Communications team organized the day and was on hand to present the hospital with a check from SCEA for $25,000. We also donated PS2 systems and games to help make their stay a little easier and happier. New Orleans’ very own Derrick Tabb from the Rebirth Brass Band, Trombone Shorty and the Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu also popped in to play with the kids.
Thanks to the staff at the hospital for a great experience. Please keep these kids in your thoughts; they are truly some of the most amazing PlayStation fans that I have ever met.
We’ll be in New Orleans all weekend – so if you want to get hands-on with some new and upcoming PlayStation games, stop by the PlayStation Experience Truck at City Park. Stay tuned for more Voodoo highlights!
