A Gift From the Future

Ages: 6 and upProducer: LoopDLoopKids


A message album aimed at young people of all backgrounds promoting positive thinking, the importance of dreams, belief in oneself, and acceptance of others through catchy original pop songs. In the four tracks — “Fantastic,” “Let Me Dream,” “Never Give Up,” and “We Are the Same” —singers tell listeners to “fight to the finish, “sky is the limit,” “dance like nobody is watching you.” Only 16 minutes long, but impressively produced and performed.
