This is a musical edition of The Children’s Hour featuring some of the best kids’ music released in 2021, including tracks from each of the 2022 Grammy nominees for “Best Children’s Album” which reflect the banner year in family friendly releases by people of color.

It was a year of challenges for children worldwide slogging through the pandemic, and the Kindie music community responded with songs to boost resilience, empathy, and express the sorrow over the many who have suffered, including kids. We even include a track from our original pandemic project, ICKY: A Radio Musical.

Join us for an hour of music and fun!
