Little Darling was born from the belief that singing has the power to heal and to help create harmony in our lives. In recent years, pediatric research has shown clinical evidence supporting the healing power of song, showing that soft, soothing singing without instrumentation, combined with the calming sounds of breath and natural silence, can reduce children’s heart rates, improve sleep and perk up feeding pattern. Inspired by science, Little Darling is an organization dedicated to creating accessible therapeutic singing as a way to restore balance, prevent pain, and enhance feelings of comfort and safety.
One of the most accessible ways to replicate that intimate and affectionate environment of being sung to, is through a cappella lullaby recordings. Little Darling produced their first album, Darling Lullabies, in 2014. A second album, Canciones De Cuna, featuring all Spanish songs from over 4+ countries will be released in the Spring of 2017.
Lisa Darling has been singing her way through life since she was a little girl. Some of her fondest memories include singing with her nana, granddad, mom and sister to old lullabies, show tunes and war songs, many of which she still knows by heart and continue to provide a great deal of comfort to this day. Her passion for singing and sharing her songs of kin grew after uncovering clinical evidence in the U.S. and abroad showing medicinal benefits from the use of lullabies in Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units. Being in the medical sales industry for several years and working alongside Child Life Specialists around the country, Lisa realized the relevancy of this data and became inspired to help children heal through singing in her own way. As her enthusiasm for this work grew, so did her knowledge and understanding of just how influential music’s vibrations are to fostering healing, improving balance and promoting overall wellness in our daily lives. Little Darling was created to combine her passion for therapeutic singing and her drive to support and advocate for improving wellness through singing. Lisa now offers therapeutic singing to palliative care patients as well as adults with special needs. She currently reside in Brooklyn, New York.
