In this TedXTalk, Tim Ringgold talks about using music as a transformational bridge, helping to heal physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual needs of patients in hospitals. Tim’s aim, as posted on his website, is to heal the planet one patient at a time.
This brief clip captures the impact that music can have on people, and shows that when hospitals can’t help, music can connect with people in ways that at the very least ease their painful journeys. The power of music in such settings is incredible, and the stories of how it can help those in need are moving and transformative in themselves.
