Are you sick of the same old children's music? Have you had enough of The Wiggles? (No offense guys!) My oldest used to listen to The Wiggles all.the.time. However with the twins, we just really never got into them. For one I was tired of listening to them over and over again and to be honest, we don't listen to music as much as we should. So when I was given the opportunity to review Charlie Hope's new CD "I'm Me!" I jumped on it! A little bit about Charlie Hope:
Charlie Hope spent her childhood in Toronto and Boston harmonizing with her sister and in her school choirs. As she grew she discovered the joys of writing music as well, and it became a powerful outlet for her to express her feelings. For Charlie, music should empower not only the creator, but also the listener.We have really been enjoying this album over the past few weeks. I love the sound and tone of Charlie's voice, it is very mellow and soothing. The songs are a lot of fun too and she has a nice folksy style. We have the album on while we are playing and when it ends we start it over again. We enjoy all of the songs but I think my personal favorite is the title song "I'm Me!" This is a great line from the chorus:
Her fresh approach to children's music stems from the many years she has spent with children - from receiving her degree in Art Therapy with Children to the preschools and private homes she has become an integral part of as a trusted caregiver. From all her experiences Charlie believes that music is vital to a child's overall well-being.
On her debut album, "I'm Me!", she created music that is relevant to children's lives; reflecting and respecting their experiences. Elements in the album include a positive take on naptime, learning about the joys of having a new child in the family and discovering the limitless possibilities we all have inside of us.
"I can act a certain wayI also really enjoy "Mr. Sun" because it is upbeat and very catchy. I find myself walking around singing it all the time. There is even a song titled "New Baby" which fits in perfectly here since our new baby is due in less than 2 months (wow).
And do all sort of things but in the end
I'm me, I'm me, I'm me"
This album also just recently received a silver Parent's Choice Award! As a very nice bonus, the CD packaging is made with all vegetable inks and minimum 10% post-consumer recycled content. Oh and no wasteful plastic case!
