Recognized as “the queen of kids’ music” by People magazine, Laurie Berkner is a singer, songwriter, lyricist, and author.  With an average of more than 14 million monthly streams and millions of CDs and DVDs sold, Laurie’s songs have become beloved classics for children worldwide.

Laurie releases a new music video on the first Friday of every month on her YouTube channel, and during COVID-19 lockdowns, Laurie and her team produce interactive, livestreamed, Virtual Family Concerts every 6 weeks, as well as numerous “LIVE Berkner Breaks”: mini-concerts and birthday parties on Facebook and Instagram Live.

She displays an instinctive understanding of children’s natural rhythms and energy, which keeps kids enraptured and brings parents and caregivers happily along for the ride.  Laurie finds inspiration in her audience.  “I want to create songs that matter for children,” she says.  “I was singing once and saw a four-year-old girl shut her eyes and start swaying to the music.  I thought, ‘That’s the reason I got into music.’  It keeps me wanting to do more.” Learn more at www.laurieberkner.com. Join us as we spend an hour with Laurie Berkner – have your kiddos grab an instrument, sing and dance along.
