If you have a girl in your home or that is special to you, you are going to be interested to learn about 1 Girl Nation and their self-titled debut album. My daughter and I have been enjoying listening to this album in the car (I often get made fun of for trying to dance while driving - don't worry I am just moving my arms a bit - also, my kids have an understanding that they have to let me sing in the car or I will sing in public around them.) This album is such fun to sing to.
What I just love about this new band, 1 Girl Nation, is that they are singing about being a good person and living a Christian lifestyle and keeping God in your life. I don't need to worry about the lyrics in their songs and what message they are sending to my daughter because all of their songs are sending a positive Christian message.
While I can't control what my daughter hears on the school bus or what is pumped in to the pool during swim practice, I can control what she hears at home and in my car. And while I admit that some of the music I listen to is not something I want her to listen to, as long as I have a CD along with me I can pop it in and give her something with a positive message to listen to. I still need to download it to her mp3 player for her (I have to find that cord that goes from the player to the computer as it is MIA - ugh!)
My daughter loves the upbeat pop sound of the band and that they are a group of cute girls. Young girls and preteens (even me) are drawn to attractive looking people (even if we don't admit it out loud) and young girls will often dream about if they were that person. In an age where some of the role models for girls are causing a media frenzy with provocative dancing and scantly-clad bodies, it is nice to have a band of girls that are dressed to show their individual personalities and dressed appropriately and are having fun just hanging out together in the video.
THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT FOR THE YOUNG GIRL, PRE-TEEN OR TEEN IN YOUR LIFE!
