Living in Brooklyn and covering music, I constantly meet talented musicians while at shows or just hanging out in the neighborhood. I met Amelia Robinson at a food tasting in Park Slope and when I learned she was a children’s music and story entertainer by day and a grown-up music siren by night, we kept in touch and I caught one of her shows at The Rock Shop nearby.
One of her songs was recently selected by Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health to appear on a cross-genre kids album, Songs for a Healthier America which helps to promote nutrition and exercise in youth across the nation. Some other artists who will be featured range from Doug E. Fresh and Jordin Sparks to Ashanti and Matisyahu.
The song feature is a huge opportunity to get her name out there and she’s in the process of recording two albums — one of kids songs and one for the adults, but she needs our help. Watch the video below and for more information on Amelia and how to help visit indiegogo.com. Her deadline is tomorrow (July 15) at midnight!
