NICU triplet band gives back to hospital

Posted: Updated:

Former patients of Phoenix Children's Hospital give back to the hospital by singing. 

Triple Firrre, a band of triplets, made up of two brothers and their sister, sang at the Hospital on Tuesday. 

Band members Sela, Alex, and Ari were triplets who were born prematurity at Phoenix Children's Hospital 13 years ago.  They stayed at Phoenix Children's Hospital in the NICU. During that time, they were cared for by the staff for a month before they could go home.

The triplets make a yearly visit to the hospital on Valentine's Day to pass out gifts to the other children staying at the hospital.  This was an additional visit to put on a miniature concert in order to say thanks to the caretakers and the hospital for taking care of them when they were born.

Earlier in May, the band played at Desert Stages Theatre and raised $3,100. Half of those proceeds are going to the hospital's general fund. The money can be used for a variety of reasons, for example, paying bills or putting the money towards new equipment. The other half goes back to Desert Stages Theatre, also a non-profit organization.

They sang Imagine by John Lennon to a group of patients at the hospital.
