Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We'll Make Things Better Together is the musical companion to my children's picture book which was published this year by Penguin Random House. The album encourages children to work together to create a better future, and the songs are meant to be both engaging and celebratory. We hope the music will delight kids and parents alike, sparking conversations about the power of collaboration and community.
Please share your new projects with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to listening to your music!

I'm incredibly grateful to my trusted friends and collaborators from different countries and cultures who helped bring these songs into the world. We're truly better together!
