Let's sing together!
Engaging with people living on the streets of Indianapolis through the restorative power of song.
Singing requires controlled breathing that regulates the heart rate, triggers a relaxation response and brings the system to a homeostasis that generates feelings of well-being. Vocalizing improves posture, releases muscle tension and reinforces a mind/body connection.
Singing demands focused concentration, improves mood, invites exploration and self-expression of difficult emotions and gradually builds self-esteem.
Singing eases isolation and loneliness, quickly builds bonding in groups, encourages and supports positive social interactions, and ultimately combats the disintegration of communities and improves broader social networks.
