MUSIC IS MEDICINE

Katie's Art Project pairs musical artists with children facing life-threatening illnesses to collaborate on original compositions that are recorded and shared with the world to spread the desired message of each patient and share their legacy with the world.

With the permission of each patient's family we also capture the meetings and recording sessions on camera to create a unique music video to help in making sure their legacy is spread far and wide.

You can find our singles on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your music.

THE HISTORY

Music is Medicine (MiM) was born in the summer of 2008 when sisters Leora and Ariela Friedman recorded an album of original songs for a group of hospitalized kids in Baltimore.

In 2017, Katie's Art Project partnered with Music is Medicine to provide programming to children in New York and beyond. Since the birth of this partnership, Katie's Art Project has brought Music is Medicine programming to New York Presbyterian's Children's Hospital of New York and Lurie's Children's Hospital of Chicago. Katie's Art Project captures the music to be released on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and a music video to raise awareness and funds to continue programming.

In August 2018, Music is Medicine has become an official division of Katie's Art Project with ties to musicians and hospitals across the United States.
