This was a busy weekend for CC and me, and one of our events was the launch party for Debi Derryberry's new CD "Baby Banana."
The kid-tastic bonanza took place at Westside Children's Center in Culver City. I'd never heard of this organization before, but it's a nice-sized facility that sports a great playground as well as the meaningful mission statement of providing foster care to neglected children.
In addition to the singing, dancing and storytelling, young culinary students from Piccolo Chef (also located at the Center) were on hand to provide strawberry-and-pineapple kabobs as well as chocolate-covered bananas.
CC really got into the music -- you can see her in the video tapping her feet from her playground perch -- and even started dancing next to Debi as she strummed her pink guitar. (Kinda reminded me of Courteney Cox in Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" video.) To cap off the afternoon, she even got a pic with the voice of "Baby Banana" herself.
Now, for giveaway news! After writing names on little sheets of paper, on which CC then added her colorful stamps of approval, we threw them into an LA ball cap we purchased at the Venice Pier a few months ago. CC drew pulled a name out of the hat, and it is .... drum roll, please .... Maggie! Come on down! You're the lucky winner of the new "Baby Banana" CD.
We sang "Itsy Bitsy Spider" in your honor, but I'll spare you that video.
I'll shoot you an email to get your address, and we'll go from there! Congrats, and thanks for reading the blog. And thank you to Pokie and Emily for also leaving comments and great song choices.
