Multi-platinum recording artist and three-time Grammy Award winner, Seal (pictured), autographed three Sennheiser evolution e 935 Platinum vocal mics for the fourth annual Musicians On Call benefit concert and charity auction. The event culminated at the Hard Rock Café New York in Times Square on January 29 with a headlining performance by Seal.

Seal was nominated this year for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his single "Amazing." His autographed microphones inaugurate Sennheiser's new philanthropic program for donating funds to well-deserved music industry charities. The mics will be auctioned on the new Sennheiser Website with links on other subsidiaries' Websites in the early spring.

Musicians On Call was founded in 1999 with the mission of bringing live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in health care facilities to enhance the healing process. To date, its volunteers have played for more than 95,000 people. Musicians On Call continues its mission through room-to-room hospital performances by both local musicians and national celebrities, and as well as through its CD Pharmacies and Project Playback programs.

"We are grateful for Sennheiser's generous donation," says Leslie Faerstein, executive director of Musicians On Call. "Our campaign to bring music straight to the bedsides of patients in hospitals would not be able to continue to expand without the donations made at our annual event. It was an exciting night made even more special by a performance by Seal. The impact of this one night has a profound effect throughout the rest of the year improving the health and spirits of thousands of patients one by one, bedside to bedside."

"In addition to being one of our favorite artists within the company, Seal has been a long-time endorser of Sennheiser products, and we're proud to partner with him to benefit Musicians On Call," says Kristy Jo Winkler, Sennheiser's global relations manager for the Americas and Canada.

"Giving back to an industry that is so supportive of our products is a joy," says Susanne Seidel, president of global marketing for Sennheiser. "Sennheiser is committed to auctioning signed microphones to raise funds for music industry charities on a semi-annual basis with the signing artist designating the recipient charity.

"The opportunity to get Seal-autographed memorabilia with such unique character as our Sennheiser microphones is rare indeed," Seidel adds. "The truest of fans and most ardent of collectors will come away with the prize, which, in the end, will benefit everyone. So bid early and bid competitively!"
