Lots of connections were made among media, gospel artists, patients, and families at St. Jude
Children’s Research Hospital during its Celebration of Hope weekend Oct. 13-15 in Memphis, TN.
Stellar Award-winning gospel singer Casey J. Hobbs told EEW Magazine her deepest connection
was with the children and how much “joy” she felt during her inspiring visit.
The worship leader best known for her two Billboard Top 10 hits, “I’m Yours” and “Fill Me Up,”
admitted to EEW President Dianna Hobbs that she was initially “nervous” about how emotionally
difficult it would be to come face-to-face with children battling for their lives.
“Working in the local school system, I’ve run into students and children with different health
predicaments,” said Casey, a former math teacher who has previously taught youth one-on-one
who were medically home-bound.
Despite her experience, she thought, perhaps, interacting with St. Jude patients that are on a
harrowing journey to wholeness, might prove equally, if not more so, difficult.
“I love families and I love kids so I’m like, ‘I’m going to cry for six hours,’” the Atlanta-based Tyscot
recording artist assumed. But after arriving, Casey found the atmosphere pleasant, filled with hope,
love, optimism and most of all, joy.
