This past weekend, hundred of Long Island kids and parents turned out to The Space at Westbury for the 2014 edition of the Kidz Bop tour.
Recently named Billboard’s #1 kids artists for the fourth consecutive year, the KIDZ BOP Kids are bringing their nationwide “Dream Big, Sing Loud!” Tour across the country and this was a stop along the way. This year’s group featured Ashlynn Chong, Bredia Santoro, Grant Knoche, Matt Martinez, and Jayna Brown; who are all between the ages of 10 and 12; these kidz can really sing, dance, and play Instruments!
Ashley is from California, Bredia is from Illinois, Grant from Texas, Matt is from New Jersey and Jayna is from Maryland. These five extremely talented kids were chosen out of thousands who auditioned to sing on albums, appear in commercials and music videos, interact with members on KIDZBOP.COM and perform live on tour, year-round – and they really pulled it off in person at the show.
The KIDZ BOP Kids perform kid-friendly versions of today’s biggest hits in a high-energy and interactive show, complete with live tweeting on a screen behind the band as they play. The “Dream Big, Sing Loud!” live show is the ultimate family concert experience that guarantees to get everyone singing and dancing along, and the Space was moving to the beat all afternoon.
KIDZ BOP is a perennial best seller with more than 14 million albums sold, and their most recent album KIDZ BOP 25 debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 (and as the #1 Kid Album) and has remained in top 5 since its release. Their next music release, KB 26, is set to be out on July 15, 2014
Fun fact: In 2013, KIDZ BOP outsold some of today’s biggest artists including Miley Cyrus, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. They have 18 Billboard Top 10 debuts. Only 8 artists in history – such as Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Madonna – have had more.
