Healing With Song

Mission

The mission of Freedom Sings USA is to help veterans, active duty military and their families throughout the country reach emotional balance by telling their stories through the creative process of songwriting. Songwriting, along with peer support, helps provide veterans and their families the tools necessary to cope with trauma or readjustment from military service. Our mission is to also promote public support, education and appreciation for the sacrifice the veterans and their families make serving our country through the hearing of their stories as told through song.

Freedom Sings USA

We have a unique song writing model working with veterans, active duty, and family members expanding rapidly with virtual and in person classes and retreats across the country to help those who have served our country and given so much for our way of life. We pair award winning songwriters with veterans who tell their stories, and put them to music. Once written, a professional CD is made. Music therapy is one of the most healing alternative therapies in the world today.

Freedom Sings USA has a unique model working with veterans, active duty, and family members expanding rapidly with virtual and in person classes and retreats across the country to help those who have served our great nation.
We pair award winning songwriters with veterans who tell their stories, the ones they usually cannot tell others, which helps organize their thoughts and put them to music. Having survived military service, female Veterans come home to restart their civilian lives. Some of the women warriors are dealing with death, amputation, PTSD, TBI and sexual trauma and some, have a wonderful experience. Music therapy is one of the most healing alternative therapies in the world today.
