This man has a soul as beautiful as his singing voice. When Jared Axen first became a nurse and went about his job, he would casually sing in the hallway. He never gave it much thought or consideration, but then patients would come out and listen, and he realized he could use it to help his patients in some small way.

It certainly helps that his voice is beautiful and soothing. But as one patient puts it, when he looks at you, you know he’s singing to you. It’s a personal touch to a type of care that is impersonal most of the time. Jared believes that this helps take patients’ minds off their pain, and can help lift their spirits. It’s a sweet reminder that sometimes the little things in life can make an incredible difference.
