We Look forward to seeing you.

When we do these sessions, participants can see one another but can’t hear each other sing together due to internet timing (delays) which are different for each user.

Given there was so much interest we are recording these so people can access them as they want.

A picture of some of our guests

Barbara Lee has enjoyed entertaining people through song for years. Due to physical distancing Barbara agreed to join Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio for our SECOND SING-A-LONG! We had no idea what to expect but had a fabulous turnout from people around the world.

You will hear magical songs from years gone by which will trigger memories from the past. I can personally endorse Barbara’s work as I have several short youtube videos (videographer Nancy Chakrin) featuring her work with my mother.

Musical Play Highlights A Mother & Daughters Relationship through Dementia

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio

My Mother Has 4 Noses Is Back!

Musical Play – One Daughter’s Story of Life with Her Mother Who Has Dementia

Lori La Bey host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio interviews Jonatha Brooke, a highly acclaimed singer/songwriter with 4 major label releases, and 9 CDs on her own label, Bad Dog Records.  She has written for film, including Disney’s Peter Pan and Tinkerbell series; TV, including the theme for Joss Whedan’s  Dollhouse; and for other artists – Katy Perry, Madeleine Peyroux, Lizz Wright, Joe Sample.

The interview will focus on Jonatha’s 2014, One-Woman Musical, My Mother Has 4 Noses, which played Off Broadway at the Duke Theater. It was a Critic’s picks in the NY Times, and NY Post and ran for 3 months.  La Bey has personally seen the show several times, with a variety of friends and associates.  Each time, La Bey has been so impressed with the beautiful storyline highlighted through gorgeous music, which allows the audience laugh and cry together, removing the isolation dementia can create.
