Jimmy Clark’s on-stage performances at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) alongside pop artist Veronica Kole always ended with lots of smiles and applause from the audience. Most notably in 2015, Jimmy and Veronica’s live performance at the hospital’s annual Celebration of Life, an event for families of cancer survivors and victims, included the song “Forever Gone,” written by Veronica and dedicated to her brother who had passed away from cancer several years earlier.
