Black History Month is deeper than February!

Louis Armstrong

Below are links that celebrate Black History in commemoration of the efforts, dedication, sacrifice of the men & women who have fought for us to reach milestones in the quest for human rights for all races and because music is a universal language we celebrate Black History through the evolution of African-American Music.

In the studio with M83: “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming!”

“The Shakespeare Bridge Children’s Choir” took part in the recording of M83 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.” nominated for a GRAMMY for Best New Alternative Album of the year!  I asked the children’s school choir teacher what the experience was like:

“12 children from 8 years old to 11 years old, rehearsed twice and stepped into the studio to record background vocals like old pros! Anthony Gonzalez from M83 was delightful to work with as he encouraged the children and charmed the parents in fluid flow from French to English and back. This group of young singers knows me well and their level of discipline and musical accuracy was impressive to the producer, engineer, and Anthony as well.  The best part was that we had so much fun!  For many, it was a once in a lifetime experience, for some, just the first of many more recording sessions to come.  I am so lucky to be able to do what I love and inspire children to reap the rewards that come with fueling your passion with hard work.” T. Kasza

It is truly s a delight to listen to this phenomenal album and the beautiful choir and chorus voices in the background of songs. There’s really nothing like children’s voices in music and personally, I will always treasure hearing the sweet background chorus knowing that my 11-year-old daughter’s voice is a part of the choir.

We are all cheering you for the Grammys!
