Celebration of the Stars: Children’s Music by Grammy Celebrated Artists is a wide mix of talent, musical genres, themes and messages jam packed into this delightful cd. Educational without preaching, patriotic without being trite, the cd is multicultural and multilingual not to mention nonsensical, just to round things out. Danny Glover speaks a story called, “The kids in school with me”, which addresses diversity in the classroom. Several quotes from Martin Luther King Jr., to the inscription on the Statue of Liberty and beyond, all attributed. Rita Coolidge sings a blues number about being a kid attempting to get out of bed and to school on time. Quite clever. Add Buckwheat Zydeco, Jimmy Witherspoon, Faith Hill, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and others and the experience is all around satisfying. Plus? The kids will love it!
