One of my favorite songs on the Caspar Babypants album that I reviewed last week (read review and enter giveaway here!) is a lovely song called "Dark of Night", featuring the beautiful voice of Elizabeth Mitchell. So I was thrilled when I found out that I was going to get to review an entire CD of Elizabeth Mitchell's music!
Sunny Day is the newest CD from Elizabeth Mitchell, and will be available for purchase on October 5th. I was so pleased with this album. The songs range from traditional American folk songs to Japanese and Korean nursery songs, with a few more popular songs thrown in. In addition to Elizabeth's beautiful voice, the CD features Elizabeth's husband, daughter, friends, and the Children of Agape Choir of South Africa.
Since we received the CD, I've had it playing in my living room almost constantly. The songs are nicely arranged and performed and I find myself humming along to the lyrics. I like that this CD manages to expose my kids to different styles of music than they typically listen to, while still being family-friendly and appealing to all of us. In fact, I'd definitely consider this an all-family CD, not just a kids' CD. I know it's going to be a staple in our music-listening rotation for a long time to come. I also really liked the booklet that came along with the CD. It includes information about each song and the inspiration for including each song on the album. It's always great to know the story behind the music!
