"Hello, I've been a loyal fan of KidsSongs since I was 3 years of age. It is and forever will be, the best series of songs for kids ever. I just wanted to let you know how much your songs have meant to me. I am now going to become a freshman at the U of Arizona and still play them. I have grown-up, but will always love those songs; they were the soundtrack of my childhood and I thank you so much. Andrew"
Nancy Cassidy, one of the most popular childrenâ€™s recording artists in the country delights children of all ages with her warm heart-felt voice and diverse selection of traditional, original and contemporary songs from her Klutz KidsSongs series. Her first recording, KidsSongs received a Gold Record from the Recording Association of America Inc. for having sold 500,000 copies - it has now sold over 900,000! In August 2004, Klutz released a two-CD boxed set and sing-along book of Nancyâ€™s KidsSongs, produced by Ken Whiteley. This set combines music from KidsSongs and KidsSongs 2. In 2005 it received the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award and The Childrenâ€™s Music Web Awards for â€œBest Recording for Preschoolers ages 3 to 5â€ and the â€œJudgeâ€™s Technical Awardâ€.
In addition to singing and playing the guitar, Nancy writes a number of her own songs. Bruce Springsteen recorded Nancy and John Cassidyâ€™s â€œChicken Lips and Lizard Hipsâ€ and has sold a million copies. Nancy's rendition of "I Wanna Be a Dog," was beamed up to the astronauts on a shuttle flight, making her one of the first children's artist's with an orbital audience.
Nancy has a total of five Klutz CDs: KidsSongs, KidsSongs 2, Jubilee, Sleepyheads, and Hullabaloo.
KidsSongs, Nancyâ€™s original folk music, and most everything else about Nancy (including reaching her), is available online at www.nancycassidymusic.com.
â€œNancy Cassidyâ€™s music has a spiritual quality which moves families to sing along together rejoicing in the rollicking rhythms of folk music.â€ - Rita London, Public Programs Manager, Childrenâ€™s Museum of Manhattan
