(Miami Herald) – Britney Spears brought her Circus to the Miami Children’s Hospital this past Saturday afternoon, visiting with about 20 sick children who had just been told a special celebrity guest was coming to see them.
The pop star arrived at the hospital at 3:30 p.m., under the careful orchestration of her father, Jamie, who was there to oversee the entire visit. The community outreach program brings the joys of the big top to hospitalized children.
â€Because of the clown theme of her tour, I assumed her visit would be a natural tie-in for a hospital with clowns,â€ Schrager says. â€œFrom there it all happened quick, and the next thing we know, we got the call saying Britney Spears was coming to the hospital and donating $100,000 to the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Program.â€
Some kids seemed more excited than others â€” the older ones especially. Spears spoke very little â€” saving her voice for her evening concert at the AmericanAirlines Arena perhaps, cueing the kids to â€Say cheese,â€ for the only authorized camera in the room.
After about 10 minutes of smiles, poses and tight security, Spears was out the door and en route to the AAA, where the real circus would begin in just a few hours.
