Â?It (Moon Soup) is what American Idol is for television. ItÂ?s a CD the whole family can get into. She (Tamara OÂ?Leary) picked some really great songs, and I was really honored that she wanted to do a song that I co-wrote with this incredible songwriter Lindy Robbins.Â? So stated American Idol's Michael Orland during an on-the-air interview hosted by Joe Franklin and Wes Richards on June 26, 2005 over Bloomberg Radio.

American Idol's Michael Orland has endorced recording artist Tamara O'Leary and her debut CD, Moon Soup.

“It (Moon Soup) is what American Idol is for television. It’s a CD the whole family can get into,” Orland said during an on-the-air interview hosted by Joe Franklin and Wes Richards on June 26, 2005 over Bloomberg Radio. O’Leary "picked some really great songs, and I was really honored that she wanted to do a song that I co-wrote with this incredible songwriter Lindy Robbins.”

Orland highly recommended that everyone buy Moon Soup. Michael described Moon Soup as a new alternative to children’s music -- family music. Bloomberg Radio co-host Wes Richards mentioned and aired a segment of I’m in Heaven (Every Time I Hold My Little Girl), giving the record label Family Standards’ debut CD Moon Soup international exposure. I’m in Heaven (Every Time I Hold My Little Girl) was co-written by Michael Orland and Lindy Robbins.

Also featuring selections by Cole Porter, Henri Mancini, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Sammy Cahn, among others, Moon Soup delightfully achieves what may have seemed incompatible goals in presenting children’s music: to combine intelligent songwriting, with fresh jazz-pop interpretations on a recording as appealing and appropriate for children as for their parents. Family Standards has carved a new niche in the music industry - family music. Parents are tired of listening to mindless simplistic songs and long for real music for their little ones. Music they can share and enjoy with their children.

Host of the Bloomberg show, Joe Franklin, raved " Moon Soup breaks new ground in family music. Tamara O’Leary, a brilliant new singer, has put together a gem of a recording: jazz standards for families. It’s a must for every family and their respective CD collections. Go out and buy it! If you can’t, then beg, borrow or steal it!"

Other tracks on Moon Soup have received much attention through jazz and standard stations, and are currently played on 67 radio stations across America. Mrs. O’Leary has been invited for a one-hour on-the-air interview on August 17, 2005 with WGBH, the largest National Public Radio Station in Boston.

In addition, all five Moon Soup free 30-second downloads have appeared on the top 100 of children’s music and jazz vocals. Currently, What a Wonderful World appears as number 3 on Amazon’s Children’s Downloads.
