WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
I’m a pop soul singer who has worked with kids professionally for over a decade and am myself a professional, working singer. I double majored in music and theatre at the University of Miami in Florida and pursued a career in musical theatre in NYC where I later went on to sing with bands, write my own music and record voiceovers. I continue to work with kids today at private birthday parties and events including numerous partnerships with the CAMP STORES in NYC as well as the BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY and HIPPO PLAYGROUND. Additionally, I run a wedding and event band with a worldwide, high-end agency based in NYC and internationally. A fun highlight that people enjoy knowing is that I was on American Idol back when Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were the judges, Season 12, and got 3 "yes"-es! You also might have heard me on the Grammy award winning children's album "Home" by Tim Kubart of Sprouts' Chica the Chicken or as the voice of the lead character in Audible’s original story, Jukebox Joyride by The Pop Ups. My parties consist of singing, rhythm making, movement, storytelling, parachute time, fun with shakers and of course, bubbles. Music varies from Pop, Motown, Jazz, Disney and Showtunes to classic kid favorites.
WHAT DO YOU OFFER?
Live music!! Singing. Dancing. Acoustic Guitarist. Fun! Singalong. Dance parties. Concerts. Plus...Parachute. Shakers. Bubbles. Singing A Book. Whatever you want!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WILL YOU SING?
I'm primarily a pop soul singer with years of experience in kids music. I can completely tailor it to what you want, but usually do a mix of Pop, Motown, Kid Standards, Nursery Rhymes and more. I also have two kids at home who demand that I make music with them daily. I love kids, I love music and I love introducing "non-kid-music" to kids!
In-Person PARTy pricing:
For a 30-45min basic party of music with me on vocals and a live acoustic guitarist (two people total), plus sound equipment, the cost starts at $500. Additional costs come in if there are a lot of specific song requests (though I'm pretty good about fitting most in!), extra travel time to the party, extra equipment needed, additional musicians, extended time etc. Everything is totally customizable to what you're looking for. This also includes, if you want, parachute time, bubbles, singing a book and playing with shakers/maracas/scarves. If you want kids to keep the shakers/maracas, we can discuss an additional cost for that as well.
For older kiddos, I can perform a pop singing/dancing concert tailored to their specific musical interests.
