Bringing Mothers in Prison Closer to Children, Through Music
Bringing Mothers in Prison Closer to Their Children, Through Music
April 4, 2015; Jeff Lunden
Mothers in prison rarely get to see their children, let alone touch them or sing them a lullaby. But female inmates in New York City are getting a little help with the singing, thanks to Carnegie Hall. For the last few years, Carnegie has sponsored the Lullaby Project, which pairs professional musicians with women in jails, homeless shelters and city hospitals, to help them write lullabies for their children.
