KIDS/FAMILY: Lullabies, WORLD: World Traditions
Nestled in their cribs for an afternoon nap or night’s sleep, babies can now drift off to sweet slumber to soothing lullabies from around the world with the newly released album Sleep, Little One by Debra McDavid. The compact disc album features ten traditional lullabies from various cultural origins including Irish, German, Latin American and Japanese. A portion of the proceeds from each album sold will be donated to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
“Sleep, Little One has been a vision of mine for quite some time,” said Debra McDavid. “I have been performing in front of live audiences for years. Performing for children is always a wonderful experience, and I love seeing first hand how they respond to music. It has been a special gift to make an album for children, which will benefit children.”
In conjunction with the album’s release, Sleep, Little One was introduced to celebrity moms, dads and their babies at Hollywood''s Baby Boom Boom Room, a pre-Golden Globe Awards event. McDavid made an appearance and offered the lullaby album among all the other “must have” items for Hollywood moms at the event held two days before the Golden Globe Awards. Sleep, Little One is now being sold in posh baby stores in California, Texas and Georgia. The CD is also being featured in a prenatal gift basket in a collaboration with Spa Sydell and Emory Hospital in Atlanta, GA.
McDavid, a native of Texas and current resident of Atlanta, Ga., holds a Master of Music Degree from Yale University and a Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of North Texas. She made her international debut in Oviedo, Spain, as the featured soloist with the Orquesta Sinfonica Del Principado De Asturias, singing Benjamin Britten’s Les Illumination, and was hailed “an American soprano of exquisite musicianship and of unquestionable expressive elegance” (La Nueva Espana).
Drawing from a background in both opera and musical theatre, McDavid presents yet another approach to her singing ability. McDavid shows her vocal diversity on Sleep, Little One by singing in a soft, folk-like style with hush tones that are the perfect compliment for lullabies.
