On May 25, the iconic kindie rock singer and songwriter Laurie Berkner is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her first album, Whaddaya Think of That?, and families can join in on the fun at one of her live shows.

Classic songs in the kid’s album include “We Are the Dinosaurs,” “I Know a Chicken,” “The Cat Came Back,” and “These Are My Glasses,” but Berkner’s music isn’t exclusively for kids’ entertainment. Her song “Pajama Time” was prominently featured in this season of South Park’s opening episode, and her”Clean It Up” song was included in an episode of Sex and the City.

Berkner will release her 15th album — also her second Christmas album — later this year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Berkner produced 10 full-length livestream concerts and more than 100 mini shows, free of charge, on Facebook and Instagram Live.
