Brian Eno on the benefits of singing; Happy Birthday Bill Doss

Musician and producer Brian Eno says that singing is the key to a long life. Check out this fascinating story on NPR.

"... there are psychological benefits, too: Singing aloud leaves you with a sense of levity and contentedness. And then there are what I would call "civilizational benefits." When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness because a capella singing is all about the immersion of the self into the community."

Happy Birthday Bill Doss, you are truly missed.
