Many of you have seen the movie about this Joulliard trained musician who then suffered from schizophrenia and became a homeless person. In 2009 he played for the American Music Therapy Association Convention last year (2009) in San Diego, California. I found this video on Youtube that I thought was fascinating. You can see someone who comes alive through the power or music. It presents such a strong connection to the world of reality.

Now the question is then, "How does the emotional content within Catholic Music or Contemporary Christian music really communicate with the power of music?" " Is it as effective as it an be or once was?"
Why or why not?
