My kids LOVE listening to music, but sometimes their music doesn’t love me. I can only listen to songs from my own childhood for so long before my nerves get a little… nervy. So, I am so grateful that Laurie Berkner and her singable, toe-tapping, hop-up-and-down-FUN music is a staple in our minivan! Referred to as “The queen of children’s music” by People magazine, and “the Adele of the preschool crowd” by the New York Times, I can agree that her music is something your whole family will enjoy.
Laurie’s music is so much fun that, at a recent concert, I even witnessed daddies getting up and dancing. And, I have some exciting news! After 8 years of anticipation, Laurie just released a new full album, Superhero. This fresh CD is packed with 21 brand new Laurie Berkner originals plus two “bonus” tracks. With music ranging from quiet, a cappella fingerplays, to a get-up-and-dance full band number, this is Laurie Berkner at her absolute best! The brand spanking new songs range from 60’s pop, rock, lullabies, reggae, Latin, and more.
Laurie Berkner explains, “To me, Superhero is about self-empowerment- being our best selves and discovering the superhero in all of us.” I can attest that the preschoolers in my house agree! Laurie’s music inspires them to use their imagination and to be creative. Her songs take us to a tea party, a bubble bath, a doctor’s office and back to our mother’s arms. The lyrics will engage you, the collection of horns and string instruments will move you to dance, and the message will stick with you long after the songs are over.
Laurie Berkner’s newest album Superhero would be a great gift for the little people in your life. Count on it to put smiles on your faces, set your feet to dancing, and let your imagination run free!
