-- Revolutionary New Application Provides Successful Singing Experiences Debuts on iTunes December 1, 2011 --

(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Los Angeles, CA – November 21, 2011) -- Musical Health Technologies announces the debut of SingFit, a revolutionary new technology designed to help increase wellness through singing. Developed by a board certified music therapist, SingFit’s patented Lyric Coach system allows users to enjoy a successful singing experience regardless of their ability to read or see the lyrics to a song. This handicapped accessible technology enables those with Alzheimer’s, autism, brain injuries, Down Syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, impaired vision, and other special needs to engage in the health enhancing, mood elevating, joyful activity of singing.

The SingFit app and a collection of public domain songs will be free to download from Apple iTunes for use on the iPad, iTouch, and iPhone hardware beginning December 1, 2011. A monthly subscription of $12.99 allows all-you-can-sing access to SingFit’s growing catalog of songs featuring a wide range of beloved compositions from multiple musical genres and eras. From Frank Sinatra and Al Green to Bob Marley, Selena, Bonnie Raitt, The Kings of Leon and everybody in between, SingFit delivers an exciting and engaging experience for music lovers of all stripes.

Scientific studies have shown that singing in general positively impacts the levels of hormones responsible for regulating mood, blood pressure and social bonding, including serotonin, cortisol and oxytocin. Furthermore, singing has been proven to help increase immune system strength and respiratory function while decreasing stress, pain and agitation. Imaging studies also reveal that singing can promote cross hemisphere brain activity, which can increase mental neuroplasticity and improve cognitive functioning.

“Since singing is a universal activity that has been proven to promote so many healthful benefits, we designed SingFit to dramatically increase the number of people who can access singing therapies,” stated Andy Tubman, Musical Health Technologies Co-Founder and board certified music therapist. “From healthcare professionals to music fans, SingFit is an engaging application that can help deliver an successful singing experience for practically anyone.”
