Kids love Laurie Berkner!
No really, they do. And in support of her recent two-CD collection, LAURIE BERKNER'S FAVORITE CLASSIC KIDS' SONGS, she has released a new video of the holiday standard, "This Little Light of Mine." There are 51 songs in the compilation. Yes, you read that right.
Berkner will not be releasing 51 separate videos. That would be silly. And "This Little Light" is certainly not a silly song. So take a gander and relax with your families through the holiday season. I'll be take with some new children's music reviews after the New Year.
Remember holiday variety specials? Clips from the abominable STAR WARS Christmas special are rife on the Internet right now, but I refuse to provide more fodder. Instead, direct your attention to the Pop-Ups. They've been releasing kids' music videos for some time. Now, as part of their deal with Amazon Prime, they have unleashed a 30-minute "Great Pretenders' Club Special" just in time for the holidays.
You can view individual videos from the duo at their YouTube channel. But the special (part of their Great Pretenders' Kids Club) is an Amazon Music exclusive. It will move to the YouTube channel in the future, but you need a Prime membership to see it right away.
Sign up your kids for the club and earn badges. When they earn all the badges, they can get the biggest badge of them all. Next year, The Pop Ups and Amazon will release more videos to accompany each song on the album. And if you're not a Prime member, you can download the entire MP3 album for $7.99! See the band at Symphony Space on Saturday, January 9.
Here's the video for "Pretend We Forgot":
