Star Rock for Kids! and eOne Music Distribution today announced the launch of their premiere CD featuring children and teens from ages 5-17 singing hits from past decades to today’s hottest songs. Curator of talent and Founder/CEO Lisa Damiani wanted to create a platform to give all children the equal opportunity to express their creativity regardless of economical or geographical challenges. As a top vocal coach in NYC and 1989 Star Search Winner for Best Teen Vocalist, Damiani hopes that Star Rock for Kids! will encourage both introverted and extroverted children to pursue their dreams. Star Rock for Kids! premiere CD is available immediately for purchase online at www.StarRockForKids.com and will be sold nationwide at major retailers including Target and Walmart beginning June 16th.
“I wanted to create Star Rock for Kids! not as a talent competition, but as a way for children to gain confidence and express their creativity,” said Founder/CEO of Star Rock for Kids!, Lisa Damiani. “With decades of experience in the music industry, I’ve seen the way music can positively influence kids’ lives and help bring even the most introverted ones out of their shells. This is a life-changing, inspirational gift. Star Rock for Kids! provides a platform for children and teens to submit their vocal recordings in a private way so the fear of rejection is completely eliminated. We’re not necessarily only picking the “best” vocals to include on the CD’s, but take into consideration the persistence and perseverance of each individual in our selection process.”
Each CD contains an application to be filled out and submitted and invites kids to create a two-minute demo showcasing their vocal and performance abilities for the chance to become the next “Star Rock Kid” and visit the Star Rock Recording Studios in New York City to be part of the next CD.
“E One has its sights set on Star Rock for Kids! as the next musical phenomenon to hit the kids entertainment arena,” said Jim Cuomo, General Manager/Executive Vice President of eOne Music Distribution. “Lisa Damiani has created a show-stopping CD series that provides a non-stop musical bonanza for kids of all ages, while it paves the way for the stars of tomorrow to become part of the Star Rock success story and take their own place in the spotlight.” eOne’s portfolio features some of the most successful and beloved names in children's entertainment, including Dan Zanes, Putumayo Kids, Sesame Street, Strawberry Shortcake and The Wiggles.
The ﬁrst Star Rock for Kids! CD features 18 songs from all the decades including: S.O.S. (Rihanna), Holiday (Madonna), It’s a Beautiful Life (Ace of Base), Girlfriend (Avril Levigne), Makes Me Wonder (Maroon 5), You Make Me Feel So Young (Frank Sinatra), If I Can’t have You (Yvonne Elliman,), and L-O-V-E (Nat King Cole). Lisa Damiani and eOne plan on releasing two new Star Rock for Kids! CD’s per year.
