My kids love listening to CDs in the car and at home. They were very enthused listening to Melissa Green. After just playing Sing Loud! by Melissa Green one time in the car, I looked at my daughter in the rear-view mirror and she was clapping her hands and arms were waving from side to side. It was so cute 🙂 Both my kids memorized the songs they love and ask me to play them over and over. Our favorite songs from this CD are the Sing Loud!, 4 Nickels and a Dime, and The Playdate. The more mellow one is “My love”. I find myself singing the words to that song, it’s very genuine. The other day I actually found myself listening to the CD and singing along with no kids in the car 🙂 It’s FUN music for the whole family.
This is Melissa Green’s fourth studio CD, it features two duets that mark the kids’ music debut of guest artist Brooke Shields, Sing Loud! celebrates the art of having confidence, being who you are, and empowering yourself with the knowledge that you can do anything you truly set your mind to!
