The digital album is now available wherever digital music is sold and on BroadwayRecords.com.  

THE WELLSONGS PROJECT sprang from occupational therapist Michael A. Pizzi's work with children with special needs and their families, giving them a voice to empower them more fully. "Those children and families are the heroes among us," said Pizzi. "I brought composers with me to interview these children and their families, then each composer would write a song for and about each child. The project eventually took on a life of its own as THE WELLSONGS PROJECT, creating awareness that disability does not mean inability."
