Sing Like Nobody is Watching… Except Your Kids

Sing Like Nobody is Watching… Except Your Kids

Disclosure

There are a few things in my life that can perpetually change my mood and music is one of those. It’s emotional and awe-inspiring. It’s timeless and filled with history. It’s so powerful, it can bring together total strangers.

Like at this Journey concert, people of all kinds of backgrounds come together in unity when music is involved. - SahmReviews.com

If you’ve ever attended a concert, you know the camaraderie that occurs as a result of passionate people listening to their favorite artists perform live. Or for that matter, any artist. We’ve been to all kinds of concerts and with the exception of a symphony, everyone is involved in some way. Some people dance in their seats, some stand and wave about, others sing along at the top of their lungs. Music is a binding force.

Weird Al in concert is one of the many experiences we felt our teen and tween daughters needed! - SahmReviews.com

This past weekend I went to see Menopause the Musical with my mom and laughed and smiled. We took the kids to see Weird Al in concert last year and they’re still talking about it. Gaelic Storm performs at small venues but always puts on an amazing show. From world class performers like Billy Joel and Journey to small local artists and musicals, people walk away from an event smiling. Even movies like That Thing You Do, Strange Magic and Sing Street have people bouncing out of the theater grinning ear to ear.

You don’t even have to be from the era of a particular music legend to appreciate their work. I grew up loving The Supremes and other 50’s and 60’s music while my girls can often be found listening to music that I enjoyed in high school. Ever since our kids were little, we’ve tried to seek out ways to engage them. Sports, travel, baking, playing and watching TV together are all ways that we discovered were great ways to connect. Music was one of the strongest.

Our children learn to step outside their box and are rewarded by the results of their efforts! - SahmReviews.com

I believe that the introduction to dancing to singing at a young age with Baby Einstein DVDs, Elmo’s World and many other children’s shows made a huge impact on their interest in music today. How many kids compose music? How many perform in the symphony? How many sing Grease a Capella in their school’s talent show? By being silly, singing together and teaching them the power of song, we provided the building blocks. Today’s generation benefits from shows that not only incorporates strong music roots that their grandparents listened to but it does so using current artists that they know. Of course, who doesn’t have an appreciation for classic musicians like The Beatles and modern musicians like P!nk?

Beat Bugs, a Netflix Original, is inspired by music from The Beatles. - SahmReviews.com

The music of The Beatles is timeless and carries easily across generations. It’s so popular that it is the inspiration and basis for a new Netflix original, Beat Bugs. Families will be bridging generations with the help of five charming and energetic bug-like creatures (Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter) with kid-friendly storylines and music recorded by today’s top artists, including Jennifer Hudson, P!nk, Sia and Eddie Vedder. Among the songs you’ll hear in episodes of Beat Bugs are Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Penny Lane and All You Need is Love.

The focus of Beat Bugs is better suited to younger kids, but the concept is great for the entire family. If you watch a few episodes and feel like your kids are too old, there are plenty of other musicals and music-based shows available for streaming on Netflix. Among the options that cover a range of ages and interests: the ever-popular series Glee, The Last Five Years, Of Mind and Music, Rent, Crescendo, the Power of Music. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention one of my personal favorites because I met some of the stars: Teen Beach 2!

Join together with your kids and sing! Let Netflix Original Beat Bugs inspire you with their Beatles music! - SahmReviews.com

And because we think family bonding is so important and want you be inspired by Beat Bugs and to sing with your family, we have a fun activity that can net you a prize! Grab your family, a camera, a pretend microphone (or real one) and share your family’s cover version of “All You Need Is Love”. We’ll be giving one SahmReviews reader who takes on this musical challenge a gift card for six months of Netflix streaming!

    This looks like a really cute show. I will have to watch Beat Bugs with my niece and nephew.

  2. This sounds like a cute show. I don’t sing well so I don’t sing in front of people. The only exception to this is if I am at a concert.

  3. I sing loud and often, but not well. I enjoy it so I do it. It sounds like you went to a great event and had fun. Good for you!
