Singing to seniors
In honor of my relationship with my great-grandmother, and the connection I felt when I sang to her, I started volunteering at a senior center in 2005, singing to the community there. I immediately saw that the response was positive and uplifting so I started inviting my friends. By 2006 I decided to create Sing For Your Seniors, a volunteer organization to bring music to seniors in need. Now we have over 150 volunteer singers and pianists who have brought over 450 performances to seniors in living centers, day centers, and hospitals all around the New York City area.
