Courage - Songs for the Whole Family

Saturday, March 06, 2010

My daughter and I just returned from Louise Kent's CD release party in downtown Toronto and, seeing as my daughter is humming one of the songs she heard only this morning, you know the event was a hit. We danced, we sang, we ate and made friends. With a juggling, hip-shaking, magician as the MC and all-you-can-drink coffee filling the air, both kids and parents enjoyed the show. I'm not so sure about the little boy who volunteered to join in the juggling act but he knew to call it quits when the juggler brought out his mini axes! It was almost a nice segue to Louise Kent's performance full of songs jammed with positive messages for kids and how they can make a change, and like that frightened volunteer, have the courage to stand up for what's right, even if it scares you.

I cannot tell you how glad I am that I got to attend this fun-filled event. The toe-tapping music was catchy and even contagious. I just couldn't help but bust a move! It could have been due to the sudden spike of caffeine in my system, or it could have been from the energy inside the room. The kids were on their feet, bopping to the tunes and stomping their feet like elephants. They quickly caught on to the lyrics and thoroughly enjoyed how interactive the show was. Each family also left with their own copy of the CD Courage, which is available for download on iTunes or by visiting the Me to We website, which also includes information on her tour which will soon land her China. Craig Keilburger also attended the event and I even noticed him clapping to the beat. All in all, it was a great event!
