Happy songs for kids and kids at heart is the name of the game on Laughing Laura's debut album. This upbeat collection of 15 original songs and cheers is the first ever laughter-themed children's album. Laughing Laura and the Gigglers are accompanied by an upbeat jazz trio. Today is a Laughing Day delivers big, swingin' fun to inspire lots of laughing, singing, and dancing for the whole family. For her creative contributions to the laughter movement, singer/songwriter Laura Gentry has been named a Laughter Ambassador by Laughter Club International. She produced Laughter Friends, a laughter workout video for children, which features 5 of the songs from this album. She is also a motivational speaker and an ordained minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Today is a Laughing Day has 15 original songs with Laughing Laura and her chorus of Laughketeers backed by a really fabulous jazz trio featuring Tom Bourcier. These are tough times, and it is more important now than ever to laugh and be merry. Lauras CD is great fun! The music is swinging, upbeat jazz, and the lyrics are ones only Laughing Laura could write. These are totally unique creations that lift the spirit.
Laura has made laughter her lifes mission, and as a recipient of that joy, I can positively state that it absolutely works. I am happy to know Laura personally, and I can attest to the great happiness that follows in her wake.
The package says this is an album for kids and kids at heart, but frankly, it works for all ages. The lyrics are lighthearted, and the quick tempo of the jazz will get your toe tapping.
