Songs from the Heart, a partnership between Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Gilda’s Club Nashville, is a two-day workshop and concert. The workshop pairs professional songwriters with cancer patients, survivors, their families and medical professionals to write songs about their cancer experiences. Nashville songwriters Alissa Moreno, Jesse Lee, Morgan Myles and Stephen Salyers will perform these songs at the Songs from the Heart Concert. A coffee and dessert reception will follow the performance. 

“Great songs happen when songwriters seek to find the courage to be vulnerable in exposing their deepest feelings on the page. Such fragile and important ideas need to be nurtured in a safe environment in order to come to fruition,” says Tricia Walker.  That very thing has taken place in the workshop, and continues to be a great experience between the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Gilda’s Club Nashville.
