You have to add Music to the Searchable items in the Search settings.

These settings you normally find when pressing the phone's Search button (to view the Search widget) -> [Menu] -> Search settings -> Searchable items and you select the items you want to include in your search.

On a HTC phone I think you find these settings here: [Menu] (while on a Home screen) -> Settings -> Search -> Searchable items.
