Welcome to Sunset Singers. We are small group of singers dedicated to helping loved ones cross their thresholds as calmly and peacefully as possible. We all feel a special calling to sing for the terminally ill and dying.
Due to the visting restrictions and the need to refrain from being in close contact with others, we are temporarily putting hospice singing visits on hold. Here are links to a few songs that families may comforting until we can once again provide our songs.
Sunset Singers repertoire:
How Could Anyone?
I Am Whole
Other beautiful and comforting songs:
Angel by Sara Mclachlan
Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton

Let It Be by The Beatles
What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

SUNSET SINGERS song sample:
I Am Whole
"Hospice singing is for the family, as much and sometimes more, than the patient and can provide a much needed 'crying space' for everyone to begin to accept the final journey of a loved one." ~ Cynthia, Chaplain at Hospice House, 2016
