Rafael Vergara:

Hello! I’m Rafael! I have been with Musicians On Call for roughly two years and it has made my life brighter than it was before. Music keeps me sane in this insane world and the fact that I’m able to spread my love for it with my friends, family, and patients makes me ecstatic. I’m a Colombian, an actor, and a musician. But above all, I’m a volunteer and I thank MOC for giving me the opportunity to spread the healing power of music!
