‘By Request’ celebrates the transformative power of music. Everyday Queenslanders living in aged-care homes are given the chance to share the story behind their special song, giving us a glimpse into the lives they have lived in their own words. This year, as COVID-19 separates many of us physically, ‘By Request’ celebrates the ways that songs can connect us all. As the stories unfold, we explore music’s ability to heal, provide joy and evoke memories. Warm your heart with these special stories, and share in the surprise as special musical guests give the gift of song to our aged-care residents.
