The Alzheimer’s Association has released “Music Moments,” a collection of recordings that "honor the personal, emotional connection between music and the most important moments in life that we never want to lose."
The “Music Moments” project features 10 tracks by a variety of award-winning artists singing a song that they connect with. Each track is paired with a video featuring the artist telling the personal story behind their song selection.
Some of the “Music Moments” include Nile Rodgers covering the Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” Sting putting his take on Otis Redding's “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” Joan Jett performing "Hard to Grow Up”, and Lee Ann Womack covering Waylon Jennings' “Dreaming My Dreams With You.” Anthony Hamilton, Jason Isbell, The Head and the Heart, Brett Eldredge, Band of Horses, and Sharon Van Etten are also featured on the project.
Founded in 2002, the Alzheimer’s Association works to provide "support, services and education to individuals, families and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias nationwide, and research for better treatment and a cure.”
