A Soul Doctor and a Jazz Singer

Posted on 07/30/2019

At the end of Dolly Baker’s life, one doctor asked a question that made all the difference to her, to her care providers and her family. He asked simply:  “what would make today a good day for you?” He got to the heart of his patient, and with deep respect asked what mattered to her, not “what was the matter with her…”

Watch this video where 92 year-old Baker, a former professional jazz singer, does what matters most her: singing “What a Wonderful World“.
