When I lived in Orlando, I saw a billboard for Radio Disney. It said, “Music Kids Love. Not Kids’ Music.” And that said it all. Up until recently, kids’ music has been…lame. It’s usually kinda preschool-y or low-budget, or just weird remakes of kinda popular songs. Or all of the above. Finally Disney has introduced *whisper* Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers and the like that have let kids have some idols that are you know, kids!
Most kids end up listening to whatever their parents or older siblings like. And I’m all for kids listening to good music but at the same time, I’d prefer my kids to be kids as long as possible. I want Lydia to like singing “Wheels on the Bus” as long as she wants. (I, on the other hand cringe every time she suggests we sing! Round and round, indeed!)
So, even though I’m a couple of days late for the big bloggy giveaway (because of my super fun bloggy trip to Cincinnati and Pampers!), I’m giving away 2 kids’ cds by one of my very favorite people in the whole wide world, Yancy. I love Yancy so much I could devote a whole post to her (I mean, this kinda is…). She’s a good friend of mine, a self-motivated entrepreneur, an artist extraordinaire, a sincere Godly woman and totally cute.
But in lieu of an Ode to Yancy, I’m just going to give away some of her stuff. How’s that? I know, it’s what you’ve really been wanting anyway, the FREE STUFF…
Up for grabs is one of 2 cds:
Rock-n-Happy Heart is a fabu elementary aged cd with fun worship-y type songs that are rockin’, cool and still kid-friendly.
Little Praise Party: My Best Friend is a preschool album with a bookoo of songs that range from modern stuff to some old skool classics (Father Abraham, anyone?) But as cool as Dan Zanes. And waaaay cuter. (This is my daughter’s favorite album! She loves to dance to it.)
Just leave me a comment. You can tell me your kids’ favorite music, tell me about what you had for lunch or just say “I WANT FREE STUFF”. It doesn’t matter. I’ll close the comments at some point this weekend and then pick 2 winners–you can pick the preschool or elementary school album. And I promise you’ll love either one!
