BOSTON (CBS) — Patients at Children’s Hospital got a special treat on Monday.

Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart and New Kids on the Block Joey McIntyre put on a holiday concert.

McIntyre has two kids of his own, and had another on the way. He says having kids put life in perspective. “It’s amazing. It gives you a level of compassion you never really knew you had until you have kids and you can connect with what these parents are going through.”
