Sterling Heart Music announced today the release of singer-songwriter Sandi Kimmel’s newest album, “It’s About Joy! Empowering Songs 4 Kids.” Available by download on iTunes or on CD, “It’s About Joy!” is a collection of 18 songs intended to uplift, inspire, soothe and support growing healthy, happy children. Universal and non-denominational, the songs express themes of love, spirit, joy and gratitude with positive messages wrapped in sing-out-loud melodies for children of all ages.
Kimmel weaves positive messages with age-old wisdom in easy-to-remember songs, using music to connect children with their inner knowing and the ability to reach up and out into their individual greatness. Filled with “musical affirmations” and rooted in music’s powerful effect on both sides of the brain, the songs lay the foundation for growing up feeling secure, optimistic, awake and energized, and with a sound understanding of the endless possibilities of the world in which we live.
“My 5-year old son goes to sleep to your music every night.” – Jeff K., NJ
“I bought your CDs for myself…but my kids keep asking me to play them.” – Olga R., CA
According to Kimmel, “Ever since I wrote a song for my nephew’s birth (Zachary Aaron), parents and grandparents ask me to write more children’s songs. I love the idea that there is an army of children happily singing these songs out loud, triumphing over fear and adversity, knowing that they are loved.”
Ideal for children from birth through teens, “It’s About Joy – Empowering Songs 4 Kids” includes songs selected from Kimmel’s trio of albums – Transitions (2000), Music In My Soul (2002) and Reach Up (2008) – and were chosen for the positive impact they have on children. Drawn from ancient wisdom as well as contemporary philosophies like Law of Attraction, the songs foster self-esteem, self-empowerment and a healthy view of humankind. http://sandikimmel.com/empoweringsongs4kids.html
Kimmel’s spiritual view of the world comes through in her songs. “People have told me that my music helps them understand what they believe in,” she explained. “It’s great to be able to help kids develop a foundational understanding of a benevolent Universe, with an image of God as the light within each of us. These songs represent everything I believe to be true, what I’ve learned about the way the Universe operates and they reflect where I am now on my own spiritual journey. I wrote them because they help me remember when I forget that life is an incredible, amazing, journey and they help me “stay tuned” to the vibration of love.”
“You capture the essence of every spiritual teaching in your songs. Your music helps me know what I believe in.” — Laura G., AL
Strong vocals, harmonies, acoustic guitars, bass, piano and percussion deliver these tuneful songs with infectious energy. And the ideas they promote are positive and powerful. “It’s About Joy – Empowering Songs 4 Kids” is a great gift idea for the children in your family…or even for your own inner child.
