Let Rick Springfield Sing Your Kids to Sleep
Many years ago I saw Rick Springfield as my very first concert. It was the summer before my freshman year of high school and my BFF and I were HUGE fans. We'd rush home to catch "Dr. Noah Drake" on General Hospital just to ooh and all over his tall, dark and handsome good looks. We'd swoon as we listened to "Jessie's Girl" and when we had already planned a beach trip one weekend, there was no question we'd change our plans when we found out he was playing a concert at Carowinds. Fortunately, her mom was a trooper! She even sat with us on the front row.
Fast forward a few (dozen) years later and Rick and I have both changed a lot. I'm now a responsible parent waiting for the next concert to come around that MY daughter will swoon over. And that's kind of ironic because Rick is now singing to her generation. With his new CD, My Precious Little One, Rick serenedes the little ones with his original lullibies. Written for his very own sons, his songs are soothing enough to comfort your child yet just mellow enough to help you relax while enjoying his great voice. It does seem slightly strange to hear that voice cooing out lullabies - but when I look at how much time has passed between then and now, it's a perfectly natural evolution. I give My Precious Little One a thumbs up!
One winner will receve a copy of My Precious Little One. Just send me an email and tell me your favorite Rick Springfield song (don't forget your email) and you could win an autographed copy and let your kids grow up listening to him too! Deadline is Midnight, EST, April 24, 2009.
