Rise Up for Positive Values With Father Goose

Father Goose always promises a good time and a positive message. Now the self-proclaimed king of the house party presents his latest video, "Rise Up Now" featuring Coolie Ranx, Addis Revolution, Itimo and Vic Rosario. Inspired by ongoing modern day issues and events that affect adults and children alike, "Rise Up Now" addresses human suffering, racism, equal rights, justice, extinction, social agendas, and cyberbullying. As FG says, "As we strive to create a better world for humanity, we all will continue to rise up now as one."

Love for Family Drives Elliott Park for Valentine's Day

Nashville musician, illustrator, and children's book author Elliott Park celebrates Valentine's Day with a charming duet, "Love Will See Us Through," featuring eight-year-old Lilah Benjamin. With so many divisive forces in the world today, Park hones in on the pure, unadulterated bond between parents and offspring.

There's no overt politicizing and it's a world of difference between what a child sees as overwhelming compared to a parent. But Park brings it all into focus with a simple piano arrangement that instantly makes listeners recall Randy Newman's "You've Got a Friend In Me." In that sense, "Love Will See Us Through" is a notable companion piece.

Park: The road has been a little rough and a little bit rude, but I know love will see us through.
Lilah: Whatever, it don't matter, what it takes we will do, 'cause I know love will see us through.

You can look for Elliott Park's debut children's CD, JUST BE, from his website and Amazon. You can stream "Love Will See Us Through," (out February 14), on Soundcloud:
