Recording studio in hospital about more than music

AP/Yahoo News, January 5, 2009

The Purple Songs Can Fly program at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston gives patients a chance to record their own songs in a fully equipped recording studio at the hospital. More than 116 songs have been recorded since Purple Songs began in March 2006 as part of the cancer center's Arts in Medicine program. Some of the recordings have been featured on audio tracks aboard Continental Airlines flights, and flown into space aboard the space shuttle.
