This remarkable CD is entitled \'Sing-a-long Songs and Lullabies, A Mother's Love\' and is most appropriate for sale to parents with small children, age newborn up to 9 years old. The soothing vocals and the outstanding musical production make this a smooth, tender collection for those special quiet times. We have test marketed this product locally within a cross section of parents and children and have found that not only do children love it but parents do too. Parents do not get bored and they don't mind their children listening to it again and again as children will do. This collection takes children's music to a whole new level. Pascale LaPorte is a teacher who is now a stay at home mom. She began writing songs because of her love for music and because she wanted to express her love to her babies, 4 years old son Julian, and twins Timothy and Tayla now 23 months old. Pascale is a naturally gifted vocal artist. The soft tender tones of her voice, combined with her experience as an educator, allow her to teach and touch the lives of babies and young children through the gift of music. She believes that early exposure to positive language and images through music is one way of promoting improved brain development, verbal skills, and intelligence in children as young as 3 months old. A daughter of the West Indies, Pascale was born in Haiti and speaks fluent French. She grew up in a family where songs and singing were an everyday part of her upbringing, and began singing and acting in school and church performances before the age of 6. In 1984, Pascale's joined her family in the United States and settled in Orange, NJ where she completed her primary education. She later went on to attend Kean University in Union, NJ. While at Kean University, she studied music for two years prior to graduating with a bachelor's degree in broadcast communication. Pascale is guided by a close spiritual relationship with God and has always tried to make a difference in people's lives by sharing her gifts and talents. In 1986 she founded the NJ Haitian Mass Choir in Orange, NJ where she developed a program to bring musical training through song to the youth in her community. Her goal was to engage young people in positive, fun and developmental activities as a way of keeping them off the streets and away from the negative and sometimes violent images on television. Her success was realized when the choir's numbers swelled to 80 members and they began to receive requests to perform in various gospel venues throughout the country. She later went on to direct additional youth choirs in Elizabeth, NJ and Brooklyn, NY. Pascale was a member of the Beracah Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY where she worked with the youth choir infusing life into some of the greatest and well known cantata's, much to the delight of the local congregation. In addition to her work in her community, Pascale has contributed background vocals on selections for several independent artists, two of whom are the now renowned Haitian American singer, songwriter,producer Wyclef Jean and the great hip-hop female vocalist Lauren Hill. Pascale began her teaching career at Orange Board of Education, she taught there for 9 years until retiring due to complications with her twins' pregnancy. She has since been blessed with a beautiful set of twins. They along with son Julian are her main priority as she and her husband work to provide a strong foundation and loving home. Pascale is a hard working entrepreneur determined to succeed. She is married to music producer, Danny LaPorte. They and their 3 children currently reside in New Jersey.
