I’ve also been performing solo as “The Fairy Godmother of Music” edu-taining young people with sing-alongs, storytelling and fun. In this show, I focus on songs like “This Land is Your Land” from the history of American settlers to modern Disney favorites (Moana, SING, Coco) acompanied by stories, quizzes and facts from my global travels tailored to fit each audience.
