Joan Jett and Sting are among the artists who have contributed to a new album titled Music Moments that was created by the Alzheimer’s Association, focusing on raising awareness of the condition by demonstrating how music touches people’s lives in personal ways. The Alzheimer’s Association said in a statement: “These songs honor the personal, emotional connection between music and the most important moments in life that we never want to lose.”
Jett recorded a new version of her song “Hard to Grow Up,” which you can listen to with the accompanying video: here.
Sting recorded a cover of Otis Redding’s classic “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” noting that his wife’s mother died “from premature Alzheimer’s, and it’s a tragic and horrifying disease. It’s a potential in all of our lives, so whatever research we do at this present time is absolutely important.”
