Proceeds from NHPCO’s Hospice Music Project new recording The World Around the Bed: Songs of hope and healing will support PPE supplies for hospice providers.
The birth of the Hospice Music Project began in November 2018 as part of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organizations’ (NHPCO) interdisciplinary team conference hosted in New Orleans. At a conference session led by hospice physician and musician John Mulder and GRAMMY award-winning songwriter Tricia Walker, hospice professionals shared reflections on their work. They put words to the many emotions experienced in caring for people often near the end of life. Walker and Mulder shaped those words and wrote the music to create the first recorded song, Joy in a Teardrop. The Hospice Music Project was born.
The release of World Around the Bed is the latest Hospice Music Project collaboration between hospice physician and musician John Mulder and GRAMMY award-winning songwriter Tricia Walker.
NHPCO, along with John Mulder and Tricia Walker are proud to release the new recording, The World Around the Bed: Songs of hope and healing. Featuring 11 original songs created from the experience of hospice heroes from across the country, The World Around the Bed... reflects the joys, sorrows and difficulties and even the lighthearted and humorous moments that are a part of life’s journey.
“We feel that this will be one more effective way of communicating the sacredness of our work and establishing a testament of our wonderful legacy,” said co-creator Dr. Mulder.
The proceeds of the sale from The World Around the Bed will help bring much needed PPE to providers in the hospice community, many of whom are struggling with lack of supplies during these difficult times. The album can be purchased through the NHPCO Marketplace online or by calling them at 800-646-6460. The album is also available on Amazon Music and iTunes.
