Seven-time Grammy award winner Will.i.Am has spoken many times about his ADHD and how he calms his mind and focuses his attention.
"I have ADHD. I'll admit it," he said. "I've got all this stuff in my head at the same time as I'm doing stuff and I don't know how to stop or slow down.
"But it's all good because I know how to control it."
One thing I learned about ADHD is that it's hard to keep your attention and you can't sit still and you're always moving and thinking about a whole bunch of things," he said. "But those traits work well for me in studios and in meetings about creative ideas.
"I've figured out a place for it. If you listen to the songs I write, they are the most ADHD songs ever. They have five hooks in one and it all happens in three minutes. I figured out a way of working with it."
The '#thatPOWER' singer also confessed he doesn't think he would be able to cope if he was in any other job.
"If I was stuck at a different job I'd be horrible and wouldn't survive," he said. "Music is my therapy and my straitjacket. Music keeps me sane and keeps my mind on something. It's fragile up there.
"My mind would wander, and if it wanders then that's not good because I could scare myself thinking of weird stuff."
Will added: "Music brings control to my thoughts. It's not escape – it’s just ordered. I'm making order out of a disorder."
Meanwhile, Will.i.am released his new studio album '#willpower' last week and is currently appearing on The Voice UK.
By this, we concluded that music too heals the mind of ADHD to such extent a child going through symptoms of ADHD has become the voice of heart!

Michael Phelps is an American swimmer who holds the record for the most Olympics medals at the age of 28. Phelps competed in his first Olympics at the age of 15, as part of the U.S. men's swim team. He was the first American male swimmer to earn a spot on five Olympic teams and also made history as the oldest individual gold medalist in Olympic swimming history at the age of 28.
Phelps was diagnosed with ADHD in sixth grade. But while he couldn’t sit through a class without fidgeting, he could swim for up to three hours at the pool after school. By age 10, Phelps was a nationally ranked swimmer.
His mother Debbie Phelps is currently active in ADHD Moms, an online community and resource for mothers of children with the condition. The proud mother and grandmother recently talked with Everyday Health about the challenges she faced while raising her famous son.
His mother told to health newsletter .com that
Michael has two older sisters - he was the baby of the three. So even at a very young age, he was always trying to keep up and was constantly on the go - he would have run around 24/7 if I had allowed it. My friends told me, "Boys do that," so I didn't take it too seriously. By the time Michael was in prekindergarten, I would get reports from teachers saying that he was unable to stay on task. His thinking was, "Zip, zap, let's go on to the next thing." As an educator myself, I was around a lot of energetic boys, so I still didn't think Michael's heightened activity level was a concern. When he was in kindergarten, I received the same reports that he couldn't stay focused in class. I explained to the teachers that he'd done some of the same things before, like learning shapes, and that perhaps he was bored.
See how passionate he was despite being what he was going through:” You would think that on the first day I hit the water I just sort of turned into a dolphin and never wanted to leave the pool,” he wrote in Beneath the Surface. “No way. I hated it. We’re talking screaming, kicking fit-throwing, google-tossing hate.”
In the case of MICAEL PHELPS, his mother played a crucial role in understanding the situation; different aspects that she observed in 360 degrees played as much outdoors made him play to burst energy what is being told by medical practitioners!

It’s difficult when you want to cope up but your brain doesn’t make it happen. At one point, he became very flustered by the sheer magnitude of the challenges he faced at school. Levine was finally diagnosed with ADHD during his early teenage years. This, he says, lifted a burden off his shoulders as it gave him a better understanding of the difficulties he was dealing with. His parents were very supportive as well. With their help along with that of his physician, Levine was able to chart an effective treatment plan.
Still in his adult life, he suffered from the symptoms of ADHD. He then discovered that he still had the condition. Fortunately for him and his fans, he managed to work with the doctor to effectively deal with and manage his symptoms.
Levine was inspired to launch the “Own It” campaign. He has collaborated with the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) and the Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) to assist those who have been diagnosed with this disorder as children. T
his campaign focuses on helping to increase awareness in young people along with adults that this condition’s symptoms can persist through adulthood. By helping to educate them on relevant issues, they should be able to better manage their symptoms in a more effective manner.
