Philips Breathless Choir helps people with lung problems to sing again

Posted on in Vendor Spotlight

Our vendor partner Philips Respironics has done something beautiful. On World COPD Day they launched the Breathless Choir composed of 18 people for whom breathing is a constant challenge. The choir members conquered their fears and defied everyone’s expectations by undertaking the impossible: learning to sing again.

Philips believes we can always make life better, and this kind of thinking led them to developing the SimplyGo Mini, a portable oxygen concentrator, which empowers patients who struggle with respiratory conditions to continue living full, active lives. Each member of the choir was provided with the Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays, we thought you would enjoy this touching video featuring the journey of the Breathless Choir from day one to performing at Harlem’s famous Apollo Theater. We wish you a safe and memorable holiday weekend!
