I was very excited to be asked to be part of this review. It has a great list of songs, and the singer is just amazing!!! My favorite song was “And I love her”. This Cd is wonderful, and relaxing. Prefect for when you just need to sit and relax without kids screaming, or cars honking. I listen to it on my way to the grocery store, or to pick up the kids now. My kids even like it… not exactly what they are used to, but I caught my son singing along yesterday.
