Donny Roze is a gifted musician and songwriter with a big loving heart and a message of hope and joy to share. Through interacting and singing his original music along with familiar old melodies, he administers a special medicine that heals and inspires.
He believes that the most vulnerable of us deserve access to the therapeutic healing power of music. The elders, housed in group settings that Donny and his wife and associates visit, attest to the merits of the program. Through music, the lonely find friendship, the weak are made strong and the desperate are given hope. Your support can help Donny and his army of volunteers continue to bring hope to our elders, who are desperate for his healing tunes.
