The Melodic Caring Project (MCP), the Seattle-based non-profit founded by musician Levi Ware and his wife Stephanie, has already brought the healing power of music directly to the hospital beds of hundreds of critically-ill children since it launched two years ago. This unique marriage of music and technology has an ambitious schedule of artists set for April for streams of shows, among them Tyrone Wells, G Love & Special Sauce and Switchfoot.
Melodic Caring Project, the Seattle-based organization that streams live concert events directly to hospitalized children, will join forces with singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile to stream a special concert benefitting Carlile's own Looking Out Foundation. Raise the Roof 2013, the charity's 5th annual fund-raiser, will take place on Friday, September 6 at the Triple Door nightclub in Seattle, presented by AgainToday.com.Tickets for the event are already sold out, but Brandi Carlile fans will be able to access the live stream
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1 in 88 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), affecting over two million people around the country and tens of millions worldwide; a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years. Research suggests that the increase is only partly explained by improved diagnosis and awareness.
