Just down the hall from the chemotherapy infusion rooms at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston is something you don't usually find in a medical facility: a recording studio.

It's there that kids can slip into a world away from the wearying regimen of pokes, prods and pinches and become singer-songwriters.

Purple Songs Can Fly is a one-of-a-kind program at one of the country's largest pediatric cancer care facilities. It gives patients a chance to record their own songs in a fully equipped recording studio.

More than 116 songs have been recorded since Purple Songs began in March 2006. Some of the recordings have been featured on audio tracks aboard Continental Airlines flights, and flown into space aboard the space shuttle.
