“We can make a bigger difference than you know by reaching out to those most at risk by recording cover songs! 

Will you help me make a difference?”

      – Kim Snyder, creator of The Voice Club

WHAT TO DO RIGHT NOW

 

Record a video of you (or your kids) singing any song.

We’ve included links to karaoke tracks for the top songs of the 1930’s – 1950’s below, but any song is fine.

 

WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR RECORDING:

  • A brief introduction: your name & city/state
  • An upbeat thoughtful comment (suggested): Think of what you’d say if your favorite grandparent were on the other end.
  • (Your cover song)

 

SPECIAL TIPS

  • If you currently have a loved one who is at high risk for CoronaVirus (including non-seniors at risk for health issues), please dedicate your song to them by name. And send it to them!
  • If you don’t want to add a video, consider adding slides of pictures of your parents/grandparents or just pretty scenes. (Pexels has beautiful free photos)

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

Singing & listening to others sing is a MEDICALLY PROVEN HEALTH BOOSTER:

  • It helps fight anxiety by releasing oxytocin, the hormone responsible for relieving anxiety and depression
  • It improves mood by releasing endorphins, the ‘feel good’ hormone
  • It lowers stress by releasing cortisol, the stress-inhibiting hormone
  • It boosts immunity by increasing brain chemicals that help the body to be more resilient
  • It improves sleep through the combined physiological effects that make sleep more restful and more reparative to the body.

What is the benefit of someone singing TO you?

  • It reminds you that you’re not alone
  • It reminds you that you are valued
  • It transports you to cherished memories you made when you first heard the song
  • It distracts you from the negative, but real, issues
  • AND IT’S ACTUALLY BEING USED TO MANAGE PAIN IN MEDICAL FACILITIES ACROSS THE WORLD

 

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO DO THAT FOR OTHERS RIGHT NOW

This is not a talent contest

Studies have proven that BOTH the singer and the listener will get EVERY SINGLE MEDICAL BENEFIT of singing….even if you don’t hit a note!

…besides, if you do, it’s bound to make someone laugh…and we all know what good medicine THAT is.

 WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

We will compile your songs into a playlist and contact elder care facilities to make it available to their residents, starting with Seattle, where so many elderly and their families have been impacted by Coronavirus.

Then, with your help, we’ll spread the healthy-boosting encouragement out far and wide.

Singing live with an instrument is always preferred.

If that’s not possible for you right now, don’t let that stop you.  

Narrow down your song(s) and listen to a few karaoke tracks.  Pick the one that sounds the best to you and record away!

*Don’t forget to include your introduction and closing thoughts as described above*
