  9. To see that guy open up and sing like that after being in an emotional comatose state like that almost brought me to tears. Really puts what we do and playing music in general in perspective.
  10. That's amazing. It's so sad how people just go downhill when they get in nursing homes. Nice to see something positive come out of it.

    That video was inspiring. Music is such a powerful thing!
  12. That was really amazing. I had never seen anything like that before.
  13. When he really lit up and started talking about what music meant to him, I admit I got a bit of a lump in my throat. Thanks alot man, that was awesome.

    As a former volunteer at one (will go back soon though) it's easy to see why they go comatose. Friends and family often put them there to rot. They only visit on major holidays the majority of relatives who put them in nursing homes anyways. So the patients who are miles away from loved ones just close up. I saw it first hand. I loved the video though maybe we should give ipods to our residents.
    The best thing they got is a radio playing the same old oldies tunes. I don't think anyone likes it. :rollno: Staff or residents.
