Author to Audition Children for 'Positive Penni' CD on June 21
NASHVILLE -- Children ages 4-15 can audition for the opportunity to sing on a new CD for a book written by author Miranda Sullivan and illustrated by artist Erica Swenson.
The motivational children's book "The Adventures of Positive Penni" will feature several original songs on an accompanying CD. Auditions for the recording will occur from 3-5 p.m. June 21 (Saturday) at Parlor Studios, 1317 16th Ave. S.
"We will take as many kids as we can audition," Sullivan said. "We are looking for kids who can carry a tune, but they don't have to have a lot of experience."
The auditions are free. Parents will be asked to sign a release form for video recordings of the performances. Finalists will be announced in the coming weeks with recording sessions set for 2015. For more information, visit www.PositivePenni.com, call (615) 975-4321, or send an e-mail inquiry to PositivePenniMovement@gmail.com.
"The Adventures of Positive Penni" book and CD were inspired by a little girl Sullivan nannied several years ago. The first book in the series, "Trust What You Know", will feature positive songs to help children feel good about themselves. The affirmations are aimed at boosting self-esteem and promoting good choices.
