Britney Cheers Hospitalized Children

The pop princess took time out from her "Circus" tour in Miami to visit Miami Children's Hospital -- surprising 40 sick children with her visit!


According to BritneySpears.com, Brit was invited to the hospital by pediatric radiologist Ricardo Restrepo and Lee Schrager, Director of Media for Southern Wine and Spirits America. Miss Spears was considered an ideal candidate to bring smiles to the faces of sick children through the hospital's Big Apple Circus Clown Care program, which features clowns who visit with the children.

The hospital reps thought Britney's "Circus" tour tied in perfectly with the clown theme -- and the singer was able to brighten the day of Miami's ill children. Britney posed for pictures, signed autographs, and made a donation to the program.
