KRK Kares, a program of Gibson Gives, in partnership with Music Has Healing Power and Shriners Hospitals for Children, is creating heartwarming opportunities like the recent update to the Shriners Music Room at Shriners Hospital for Children in Pasadena, California. For patients like six-year-old Naira, going to the Shriners Music Room to sing, dance, perform, or simply observe their friends explore different instruments, can turn the mood around after a hard day of treatments. Music Has Healing Power Founder, Bruce Lowe, thanks the KRK ROKIT 5 studio monitors and KNS 6402 Headphones donated by KRK Kares for the positive effect they have had, not only on Naira’s day, but for all patients at Shriners in Pasadena.
“Naira is one precious soul,” says Lowe. “She was shy at first, but as soon as the music started, she went into her joy-mode and was singing and playing with the instruments. It was so heartwarming. Seeing her happiness was a reminder as to why these medical music rooms exist. Music truly does have healing power, and it’s a real joy seeing that in action.”
