     Impressions From a First Time Nashville Music Medic

Dear Wayne and Music Medics,

Singing with you at Centennial children's hospital was such a heartwarming experience. I had the privilege of joining the friendliest barbershoppers I've ever met in spreading joy and uplifting spirits among the young patients, parents, and dedicated hospital staff.

Our voices resonated through the corridors, rooms, and the hospital atrium. It was a humbling and transformative experience to witness the power of music in brightening the days of those facing challenging times.

Walking into each room, these kids were excited, one was bashful, another used this as an opportunity to write kind words with her crayons, but we were always greeted with smiles that radiated hope and gratitude. The children, despite their circumstances, welcomed us with open hearts, eyes twinkling and faces grinning in surprise as the harmonies filled the space. We sang songs that carried messages of friendship, celebration, and even a bit of silliness, but always carrying our unwavering support of a community that deeply needs uplifting human connection.

The hallways echoed with the sweet sound of our harmonizing overtones, creating a tapestry of melodies that transcended illness and adversity. It was a reminder of the profound impact music can have on the human spirit.

I didn't expect the hospital staff to be so touched by our presence. They work tirelessly to provide the best care possible, and this musical interlude offered them a moment of respite.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this experience. It serves as a powerful reminder that even in the face of adversity, we have the capacity to bring light and love into the lives of others. Thank you!

Let us continue to spread kindness, compassion, and the healing power of music.

With warm regards,
