I love Singer/Songwriter Charlie McGettigan.  This song-video was posted on his Facebook page, a song he sings with Jane McNamee, is a testiment to the power and comfort, music can give:

One of my favorite songs in all the world is Charlie McGettigan’s song, “Paddle Your Own Canoe.”  Though I could not find a video for this song (and OH how I wish, wish, wish, this was a Singable Picture Book), you can hear a clip of the song, here:
