The fact that I got to chat with a professional singer who started her career in the New York-based girl group “The Chiclettes” and has appeared on stages such as the Continental Airlines arena in New Jersey, Foxwoods Resort and Casino, Westbury Music Fair, the Oakdale Theater, and the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, totally made my day. She also spent some time as a backup singer for Lou Christie and appeared on the widely aired national PBS tribute “Rock, Rhythm, and Doo Wop” as well as New York City’s “Doo Wop Shop with Don K. Reed.” (Can you believe that I got to Tweet with her. How cool is that?!)
But a few years ago when she was listening to children’s artists at various shows, Stacey began to adapt her craft so she could combine her love of children and music into a lively act that engages kids and creates memorable and fun sing-along songs. (To see Stacey in action, check out her YouTube channel and you can also get a sampling of her CD on her website too.)
So I wanted to learn a little more about the artist behind the music, so we chatted on Twitter. Here is our convo (read from the bottom up to follow the timeline):
If you live in Massachusetts, Stacey also gives a lot of free performances in the area, so check out her schedule. Feel free to follow her on Twitter or on Facebook. All in all, regardless of where you live, this is a great artist with fantastic music that should be definitely be a part of your kid’s CD library.
Stacey sent me a copy of her CD as she knew our family is a big fan. The CD did not influence the post, but did enable me to capture some fun home videos of my son dancing to her music.
