The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards® are right around the corner and many musical parents will be taking home more songs to share with their families. Sing to Your Baby® songbook and CD, by GRAMMY®- winning children’s music duo Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, has been selected for the coveted GRAMMY Gift Bag. The gift bag will be presented to all presenters and performers of Music’s Biggest Night®, which will be broadcast live on February 12, 2012 from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on the CBS network. Performers announced to date include proud parents singer Jason Aldean and the Foo Fighter’s bassist Nate Mendel and guitarist Chris Shiflett.
Called “the best new baby gift since Dr. Spock,” this Parent’s Choice Gold Award- winning book is turning living rooms across the country into instant performance halls. Cathy and Marcy wrote the eleven original songs in Sing to Your Baby® especially to encourage new and expectant parents (babies can hear you in the womb!) to bond with their children through song and song-based play. The book of love songs and sing-plays for new families includes all song lyrics, including “zipper songs” that can easily be changed to include any child’s name. The accompanying CD includes all of the songs performed in two keys: one easiest for most women and a lower one for men.
Sing to Your Baby® has been featured in Billboard and People magazines and on NPR. The durable hard-backed volume includes beautiful illustrations by James Nocito and tips for bonding from child psychologist Laura G. Brown. Marcy explains the book’s wide appeal this way, “When you're playing music, opinions don't get in the way. There's an equality between people. Now, at kids’ concerts, we want parents and kids to sit, and sing, together. The new book is an early extension of that philosophy.” Cathy sums it up, “We can make the world a better place if we all sang.”
Cathy & Marcy won back-to-back GRAMMY Awards in the Best Musical Album For Children category in 2004 and 2005. Their CD, “Scat Like That: A Musical Word Odyssey” was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2005 and the title song won first place in the 2007 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
