In his teen, before he became a professional
musician, Rowe visited nursing homes to perform for the
residents. In 1988 he established a nonprofit organization for
musicians and artists who travel across the country providing
entertainment as therapy to people living in nursing homes and
other health-care facilities. Singing to these people, says
Rowe, allows him to use his music "as an instrument of healing."
