Attention all Playgroundgoers, I have reviewed a new fun filled album just for you! Melissa Green has released her forth album, Sing Loud! I did not know what to expect from this album, but I can tell you right off the bat it had me dancing and loving every song.
Melissa Green reminds me of a coffee shop guitar-singing artist; it totally works! It gives a new beat to children’s music and is fun for the whole family! Sing Loud! features guest artist Brooke Sheilds, a Broadway performer who has been in shows such as Chicago and The Addams Family. Together the duo create great meaningful songs to boost children’s emotions.
Sing Loud! has many different genres of music such as swing, mexican, country, and much more! One of my favorite things about this album is that Melissa Green enforces children to be unique, be themselves, and get to know others. In the song “The Playdate”, Melissa uses upbeat music to get kids to get out of their shell and invite others over to have their own fun playdates. My personal favorite song off the album is “ Get Up”, where Melissa shows that there are more things in life when one is feeling down or tired, and that music can impact emotions and make you happier and forget about things that are bothering you. Melissa goes on to enforce being your own crazy and zany self in her song “Heyo”. Melissa sings, “I am what I am, a beautiful thing!” telling audiences that if you are happy with yourself, not to let anyone change who you are, and to remain satisfied with who you are and have become.
All in all, Sing Loud! has become one of my favorite albums to be introduced to the Playground. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do! If you like Sing Loud!, you can also check out Melissa Green’s older work : Sweet Little One (2011), Round and Round (2008), and Here We Go (2006).
