American singer Christina Perri has released a new album entitled Songs For Carmella: Sing-A-Longs & Lullabies. It’s a record that has covers of classic songs such as You’ve Got A Friend in Me and her original hit A Thousand Years. In the first half of the album, Christina Perri sings the songs. The second half consists of only music as a way for parents to sing to their little one(s).
The rhythm is smooth and sweet. It was cute hearing Carmella’s voice giggling in the background of the song Tonight You Belong To Me. The music sounds cozy and intimate- homey. It doesn’t feel like a studio-recorded album.
Christina Perri’s voice is soft and beautiful that it seems like she’s whispering. She gives the lullabies a personal touch, which makes it authentic. When she sings in this album, she sings as a mother would do for her little one(s). She performs in tune with the music.
Although I don’t have children yet, I can imagine myself listening to this record with my kids, especially the sing-a-longs. I recommend this album for parents looking for inspiration for baby songs.
