It’s always great news when there’s a new CD from Raffi, the beloved troubadour whose music has delighted families for decades, making him the perennial best-selling children’s entertainer. On July 27, 2018, Raffi’s 25th album will be released, with 15 new songs.
Raffi, who turns 70 this summer, recorded the music in his home, inspired by his dog Luna, who is the subject of three of the new songs. You can see him on tour and follow him on Twitter. He is working towards a September 2018 launch of an online course in Child Honouring-an original philosophy for redesigning society for the greatest good by meeting the universal needs of the very young. He works on behalf of children and their families in a variety of initiatives, including the Center for Partnership Studies, the Center for Children’s Health and the Environment, and the Fraser Mustard Institute for Human Development, and he is the recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Award.
Please check out You Sang My Song on Facebook. Glamour asked top recording artists like Maria Carey, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Shawn Mendes, and Meghan Trainor to watch YouTube covers of their songs. The only thing more touching than seeing these platinum singer-songwriters appreciate their fans (many of them say, “She sang it better than I do!”) is seeing the reaction of the YouTube singers to the comments from their favorite performers. It’s a remarkable moment because they stop being superstar to fan and become singer/musician to singer/musician, a deep and intimate connection. It’s wonderful.
