Featuring 16 fun and inspiring songs, “Songs to Heal Our Planet” promises to delight listeners, while at the same time raising awareness about a variety of environmental issues. It uses music to engage young people in learning more about the natural world. Because of the enthusiasm generated by the Save The Whales song (found on home page), additional songs were written by the composer, Joan Cobb. Some of the compositions are "Condor, Condor," words and music written by a girl when she was 11, and "Whales Are Chubby," a poem written by an eight-year old boy and put to music by Joan. Background includes the Beluga Children’s Chorus comprised of eight girls, ages 6-12. MaggyMay Trout sings the original song on the website at age 11. Now 16, she is soloist on many of the Songs Justin Gaudoin, age 16, is the rapper and Tyler Tolles, age 17, the percussionist on "Whale Rap." Tyler also plays percussion on most of the tracks. Ryan Hogans, age 18, solos on "Earth Day" and "Keep It Green."
“After hearing SONGS TO HEAL OUR PLANET, I recommend it for children of all ages. The songs are up-beat and very pleasing to the ear. The lyrics give children good instructions for helping our planet's environment.”
– Nathalie Plotkin, Music and Drama Critic of the Monterey County Herald
“As a fourth grade teacher for 30 years, I would like to recommend the wonderful CD that was made by children, for children, encouraging all of us to take care of Mother Earth. The songs and music are catchy and heartfelt. My students would ask for the songs and we would sing and dance to many of them. It fits wonderfully with any science, music, poetry, language arts, and even art units, as the songs set the mood for wonderful creative ideas. Earth Day is coming up, conservation, and how strongly we are all interconnected.”
– Iris Sullivan, 4th Grade Teacher All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, Carmel, CA

Make A Friend Out Of Me by Vinny Pop
Vinny Pop was born on August 18, 1960 as Vincent Ruello. He began his artistic career as a child actor and performer at the age of 7. His first band was formed when he was 14 and many school concerts followed.
Vinny says, '' I loved The Beatles as a child and still do.'' At age 26, he had his first ''hit'' in 1986 with the song Halleys Comet. Channel 10 in Sydney aired Halleys Comet at the time, and even created the film clip using space footage from the NASA space ship Giotto which was following the comet.
His then-band was called Drops Of Light and he wrote the song. The second independent release was a song called “Never Knew The Way,” which was released worldwide in video discos and a dance track in 1988. This song was a hit prediction on Video Hits 1989. Vincent went solo in 1991 after a moment of ''epiphany,'' and decided to dedicate his musical talents to help his community and the world.
In 1993, he approached the Australian Government because he wanted to assist in jails with prisoner rehab. Vincent produced and auditioned inmates for the charity album called ''Hope Album.'' In late 1993, it was signed to Warner Chappel Music, an affiliate of Warner Bros Music. Extensive media coverage followed and programs were set up around Australia. They are still used in order to allow inmates to release pain by utilizing the recordings of their words and music.
