What a beautiful testament to the power of music. Not too many years ago, I was asked by a dear friend to come and sing to her mother who lay dying. This mother had been a music teacher much of her life and her income along with that of her musician husband sustained their family during very tough times. Although this dying mother could not speak, she showed us in her eyes and smile that she heard and appreciated the serenade. Just a couple of days ago, a friend sent me a story about a little boy who sang to his little sister in utero, and when she was born and dying he sang to her in ICU, reviving her and helping her to live. If anyone has ANY dobuts about music and its power and universal language ~ just tell them these stories.
