New Documentary Explores How Music Restores Lost Identities of Elderly

By J9 of J9's MusicLife

Many people have seen the clip below of the elder man named Henry who at first was unresponsive, comes alive when he hears music.

When asked if he likes music, Henry's response is like any other music lover. . . "I'm crazy about music!"  Then when asked what does music do to him, he responds "It gives me the feeling of love, romance."  My favorite part of the clip starts at 4:30 when Henry starts singing one of his favorite Cab Calloway songs and ends it with an "OW". . . too cute!  It's crazy how earlier in the clip, Henry couldn't even remember his own daughter name but ask him his favorite band/song and he'll tell you.  Kind of like ask a kid what they remember from school and they'll have a blank stare on their face but they can recite every word to a song.
