Music has the power to make us move, cry, love, feel pain, and can even help us clean the house. But music is much more than a tool to deepen our emotions and inspire feelings. On the next Line One co-host Prentiss Pemberton and his guests explore the use of music as a tool to heal from trauma, overcome anxiety, and battle depression.
