Music is an interest that is shared amongst cultures all over the world. Music touches our hearts, emotions, beliefs, and feelings in so many ways. We use music to escape from our problems, express ourselves, to become inspired, to celebrate and to come together.
In fact, music is found to have such a strong effect on healing our mind, body, and soul that Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s hospital has created a music therapy program for its patients.
Music therapist Jenny Plume decided to make a CD with the patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s hospital. The CD was called “Everybody has a Story” and the music was written and inspired by the patients. Each song demonstrates the patient’s strength, personality, and creativity. Many great Nashville artists got wind of this vehicle used for healing and generously volunteered their talents by preforming the music written by the children. Some of the artist include but are not limited to; Phil Vassar, Alison Krauss, Melinda Doolittle, Amy Grant, and Faith Hill.
The ADS Group also wanted to make their contribution to the cause and donated 7,800 packaged discs of the children’s music.
