Hospital Singer Heals Sick Patients With Guitar

They say laughter is the best medicine, and music soothes the soul. One Albuquerque man is doing just that for patients at Lovelace Medical Center--with a joke and a song.

He's known around Lovelace Medical Center as Elvis. The sideburns might give him away, but it's the guitar that gives him his name. "Whenever I swipe out on my card is when I pick up my guitar," said Charlie Miller.

Miller has worked for Lovelace for almost five decades. He clocks in to work, then out to sing. "I think music heals," Miller said. "I like lifting their spirits."

Why is New Mexico a good place for a young professional to grow and develop?

A young professional can draw from a long heritage of New Mexicans and its history and apply it to their situation with limitless imagination. It gives me a sense of pride that New Mexico does things a little differently than other places, but yet just as effective.
