This article provides an overview of the potential efficacy of vocal performance as an intervention in music therapy within the context of vocal performance and associated health benefits. The authors advocate increased collaboration between music therapists and other professionals in order to develop, implement, and evaluate carefully designed perform ance-based singing and wellness initiatives in various contexts. Indications and contraindications for the use of performance-based singing interventions are provided. Implications for research, practice, and society are presented.
