Laurie Berkner is in Concert!!!! PLUS Her NEW CD Releases TODAY!!
When my daughter was 3 years old I was first introduced to the music of Laurie Berkner when her first preschool ballet was to "Fast and Slow". We immediately bought that CD when we found out her dance songs and pretty much wore out the CD. Over the years, my daughter's music choice has changed to music she hears on the radio and I had forgotten about Laurie Berkner and introducing her to my son. That changed when I received an advance copy of "The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection". My daughter and I recognized about 1/3 of the songs from the original CD we owned and we couldn't help but sing along. In fact, even a few seconds in to each song that was new to us we were singing along. My 4 year old son has been in love with the CD and every time we are in the car we are listening to it (which is every night as I run kids to and from their activities.) He especially loves any song that has a call to action to move around like "My Energy" and "Shake Your Body Down". In fact, last night he stood on his bed and started singing and dancing "Shake Your Body Down" to help him get all his wiggles out before I tucked him in. I am so happy we have Laurie Berkner back in our lives. She sings about things kids care about in a fun upbeat way that they just want to sing along and dance.
The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Collection CD is supposed to released on or about October 9th (that's TODAY!!) and you can order it directly fro her website. At the time of this post you could get BOGO copies of the CD for only $15. How awesome is that! 2 CDs for only $15. Give one to a friend as a present!
