Neurological studies have proven that music dramatically helps improve people’s mental wellbeing and boost physical health. On this episode host Paul Cardall reveals 8 health benefits of why we need to listen to music or play an instrument. The Dove Award winning pianist discusses how he discovered his gift of music and why listening to music or playing an instrument helps improve the quality of our lives.

Steinway & Sons considers him one of the world’s finest pianists. Dove Award-winning musician, composer, and producer, Paul Cardall’s music has been streamed on platforms worldwide 3 billion times. With 11 No. 1 Billboard albums, 30 million monthly listeners and 3 million subscribed fans on social media, Paul is one of the biggest selling recording artists of our time.

Paul was born with essentially half a heart and before his first day was finished, surgeons had cut into his infant body to save his life. He would spend virtually all of his life in and out of hospitals and recovering from surgeries. He received a heart transplant in 2009. Living with congenital heart disease has helped Paul understand the trauma imposed, particularly on a young person and their families. Cardall has made it his life’s mission to create and share piano music that is healing both physically and emotionally.

Two of the many projects he’s involved with include partnering with the The Ryan Seacrest Foundation to donate keyboards to children’s hospitals nationwide. Cardall has established scholarships for students affected by medical bills associated with congenital heart disease because he believes in getting an education regardless of terminal diagnosis.

Earlier this year Cardall released a music project titled The Broken Miracle, featuring special guests including David Archuleta, Tyler Glenn (Neon Trees), Ty Herndon, Rachel Yamagata, Thompson Square, Matt Hammitt and many others. The Broken Miracle album chronicles his life dealing with congenital heart disease, through his transplant 12 years ago.

Two versions of the pianist’s next album, December, will be released December 3 and December 10.
