Musician plays songs for CA girl in her hospital room

CALIFORNIA (WFIE) - Video of a musician taking time out for a fan has thousands of views online.

According to her Facebook page, Zoe Beyla Crouse is 15-years-old and was born with a heart condition.

She recently suffered a stroke and is now at a California hospital.

Last Friday, she was visited by one of her favorite artists, Andrew McMahon.

He set up a keyboard right beside her bed and played a few songs for her.

The video shows him playing his most well known song, Cecilia and the Satellite.

Andrew once fought for his life in the very same hospital. He battled cancer in 2005.

In the years since, Andrew has worked to help young people with cancer or conditions like Zoe.

He started the Dear Jack Foundation, which raises thousands of dollars each year.

Andrew's current project is known as Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. 

He's also known for his work in his former bands, Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate.

Zoe has responded very well to her music therapists at UCLA and it is through music we share one of the most incredible moments for Zoe and her family. One of Zoe's favorite musical artists is Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness . Through chance encounters on Facebook, Andrew McMahon himself found Zoe and her story. Andrew fought for his life at this very same hospital and is a courageous cancer survivor. In an act of true selflessness and compassion, Andrew McMahon visited Zoe in her hospital room to continue her music therapy. He played a few songs, talked to Zoe and her family, and reminded us that there are great people out there in the world, no matter what their status is. This is one of Zoe's favorite songs by Andrew and as you can see in the video, it truly had an emotional impact on Zoe. Please share this video with your friends and family. Zoe needs all the help and support we can give her. We have had a lot of requests for donations. Their is a GoFundMe page set up to help with home therapy.
