"Sing! Sing a song. Sing out loud, sing out strong." So begins a song first made popular on Sesame Street, then interpreted by singers of every style, from Gloria Estefan to the Dixie Chicks to R.E.M., as well as famous personalities such as Conan O'Brien, Katie Couric, Nathan Lane, and Liam Neeson. Now, bestselling children's book illustrator Tom Lichtenheld has put a visual story to this timeless and universal song that celebrates perseverance, self-expression, and the power of music to help each of us find our voice. Digital downloads of three songs are included with book purchase: "Sing!" "Somebody Come and Play," and "One of These Things." Music by Joe Raposo. Songs performed by Becca Kauffman with The Midnight Sun Ensemble.
