Our Vision

Provide love, encouragement and hope to every child in need and to inspire our communities worldwide to do the same.

Amos and one of MCP’s rockSTARS Mighty Maya were able to meet in person over a year ago after one of Amos’ shows and the relationship built is a beautiful representation of the power of music, personal connection and the light that shines from the strength and grace of the children we support. Listen to Maya’s story featured on NPR.

The MELODIC CARING PROJECT (MCP) is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit which bridges the gap between music, technology and patients battling serious illness by streaming LIVE personalized concerts to kids and teens in the hospital. MCP embraces the medically proven healing properties of music to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and aid in the overall wellness and wellbeing of the patient.

Unlike other complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM) programs, the MELODIC CARING PROJECT’S model meets a real and pressing need in the market with its new innovative approach offering ease, accessibility and comfort to those suffering from serious illness or injury, especially those quarantined and/or suffering from immunodeficiency.
