Bradbery pushes education

Friday, February 14, 2014 – Danielle Bradbery will push music in a week-long tour across the U.S. in early March.

Teaming with Give a Note Foundation and Disney Performing Arts Bradberry, at 17 the youngest-ever winner of The Voice, will be on the Music In Our Schools national bus tour. From March 2-8, they will travel across America, telling students, parents, teachers and community leaders about the importance of music education.

"This is a great way to reach kids my age and show them that the skills they learn in music can help them to be successful in life," Bradbery, who released her Big Machine label debut in the fall. "Through music, I've learned the value of persistence and working hard to make my dreams come true, and I look forward to sharing that with students and others during the tour."

Kicking off National Music In Our Schools Month, the cross-country bus tour will spotlight music education and the benefits music teachers bring to their students and school communities. Bradbery will perform and talk with students at each stop.

The tour will visit high schools in five cities: Eldorado High School in Albuquerque, N.M. (March 3); Cypress Ranch High School near Houston (March 4); Classen School of Advanced Studies in Oklahoma City, Okla. (March 5); Antioch High School near Nashville (March 6); and Northwest School for the Arts in Charlotte, N.C. (March 7). The tour will conclude March 8 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., where Bradbery will perform at Festival Disney, a national competitive music festival where top school bands, instrumental and vocal ensembles compete with other schools from across the country.

The five schools to be honored as part of the Music In Our Schools tour were selected by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME)'s Give a Note Foundation, in partnership with NAfME's state music education association leaders.

The foundation was created by the leaders of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) in 2011 to engage community partners in supporting music education in underserved communities.

Disney Performing Arts enhances student learning through educational experiences and performance opportunities at the Disneyland Resort in Southern California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Danielle Bradberry CD review - Danielle Bradberry
Danielle Bradbery has a leg up on the competition because she won season four of The Voice at the tender age of 17. She also has producer Dann Huff in her corner on her debut release. And that means - no surprise whatsoever - that Bradbery opts very decidedly for a pop, highly commercial sheen on her brand of what passes for country these days. Yes, there is an occasional mandolin (at the get go of the lead-off Young in America, and Talk About Love) or similar instrumentation, but the emphasis »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past – Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after. The before and after was in the choice of songs that came over the speakers including everything from Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody to Love" to The... »»»
