The youth choir Known was founded by Minneapolis vocalist Courtland Pickens last year.
This is another of my absolute favorite songs of all time, and a perfect one for putting the kids into a restful, relaxed state. It does wonders on that front for me too.
I was first introduced to this song in band class, and I prefer straight instrumental versions, but since I often sing the song to the kids (as best I can... no justice is done there), I thought I'd drop a sung version here. Enjoy!
Welcome to another iteration of Philosofer week on our video series. This time around I decided to spin some tracks that we regularly sing or play for our children, especially focused on trying to get them to bed. I hope you enjoy!
We'll start off with one of the most over-played songs, but one that I still love all the same. I thought this version offered something a little new, plus Rufus Wainwright's iteration is my favorite anyway, so bonus!
I've heard a lot about H.E.R., but this performance from last Sunday's ceremony is the first I've seen (she was nominated for five (including AotY) and took home two). It won't be the last.
Only Patti LaBelle could get away with this.
