Henry is a resident in a nursing home and has been there for about a decade. He isn’t doing too well, from what the beginning of this video shows us. He seems unhappy and very unresponsive, until someone gives him an iPod with some music that he recognizes. Instantly, the music changes him. He sits up, sings along and is suddenly much more excited about everything going on around him. It’s an incredible reaction. When asked about it, Henry verbalizes a lot of what makes music special to all of us, even if it’s in terms that we would never consider on a day-to-day basis.
