Celebrity kids fuel the most heartwarming Hollywood headlines, and whenever a birthday rolls around, stars like Tyrese, Brian McCann and Mark DeRosa know there’s only one entertainer they can call to do the little kid turn up right: DJ WILLY WOW! A hip-hop DJ and emcee whose love for the free spirits of children led him from regular rap to imagination-filled interactive rapping with kids, DJ WILLY WOW has compiled all his most engaging music into the album AND THE CROWD GOES WOW! so that EVERY child can experience the joy of a WILLY WOW party. With 16 tracks available digitally and on 12 inch vinyl, AND THE CROWD GOES WOW! showcases the topics kids love to sing and rap about most while providing a meaningful education along the way. DJ WILLY WOW and his pint-sized back up singers praise delicious snacks on “Popcorn” and “Buy Some Girl Scout Cookies,” laugh about “A Dog Named Burrito” and enjoy a fun “Cartwheel” while also learning about Martin Luther King Jr. with the help of the legendary Chuck D on “MLK That Way” and the early life of Stevie Wonder on “Little Stevie.”
As an entertainer who became widely recognized after performing at the White House to launch first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, DJ WILLY WOW has been going strong in his field for over 15 years thanks to the passion he’s developed from seeing what a big positive impact his music has on the lives of kids…and adults! As Willy’s explained, “What I really do is try to reach the child inside all of us. All of us have experienced some type of joy of childhood. That’s in each and every one of us. So if I can give something to the young at heart every time I perform, that’s what I’m all about. I want to be able to touch the young at heart, no matter how old you are, no matter where you’re from, I want to be able to touch that inner child that will make you wanna dance, have a good time, be thought-provoking and make the world a better place.” Click the picture below to listen to AND THE CROWD GOES WOW!
