I Am Happy! It is such a great CD for kids! The music is very upbeat and Sukey Molloy's voice is very soothing to kids! The kids love to listen to this CD. We especially like "I Put My Scarf On My Head" We have lots of scarves that I let the kids play with and they love acting out the words of the song. This is a wonderful CD for preschoolers. I would highly recommend it to parents and caregivers!
With NAPPA, Children’s Music Web, Preferred Choice, and Mom’s Choice Awards proudly in hand, independent children’s musician Sukey Molloy is delighted to announce the April 24 release of her third CD, I Am Happy! with Sukey Molloy.
The 18-track album for young children is imbued with the gentle,
magical atmosphere and up-close, personal style that has become Sukey Molloy’s calling card.
With a focus on age-appropriate material that encourages participation, Sukey Molloy’s
music is just right for the youngest listeners. Her voice has a happy,
reassuringly intimate presence that draws children into a safe and
trusting relationship as they listen, sing, and move along. While Sukey’s lyrics and melodies express a sweet, childlike nuance, she doesn’t compromise when it comes to production values. Joining Sukey Molloy as co-producer of I Am Happy! is Grammy-winner Larry Alexander, who brings to the new release his work with some of the biggest stars in
the music business, including Diana Ross (six albums), Bruce
Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Bon Jovi, and David Bowie, to name but a
Throughout I Am Happy!, Sukey Molloy exudes a sense of fun, wonder, and joy to which children readily connect. Explains Sukey,
“My music is intentionally created to relate directly with the young
child, and it’s very important to me, as I write, to sense each song
from the child’s point of view. My goal in making I Am Happy! has been a simple one: to share music that makes children feel happy! In all my work, I invite kids to participate, and on I Am Happy!
I find this, in a playful way, through nature themes such as snow, sun,
rain, fire and water, and by incorporating animal sounds like fish,
rhinos, penguins and ducks. Every song encourages children to try
movements and sounds as they sing along.”
Carole Demas of WPIX-TV’s beloved program, The Magic Garden, praised Sukey Molloy as “soothing and patient, assuring to parents about the welfare and education of the very young.” Sukey’s award-winning body of work includes the CDs Circle Songs! with Sukey Molloy (2005; Children’s Music Web Award, Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award), I Like to Sing! with Sukey Molloy (2007; NAPPA Honors Award), and two Sukey’s Circle! DVDs (2009 and 2010; NAPPA Honors Award, Moms’ Choice Gold Award, Preferred Choice Award, NAPPA Rising Star Commendation),
