Meet Henry. He’s a resident of this Brooklyn nursing home where new music therapy is being used to help break senior patients out of their shells. Henry experienced several strokes and was in a near wordless, silent state. But when nurses gave him an iPod filled with music from his youth, Henry came back to life.
