Children’s musical theater and, most recently, CD’s are alive and indeed thriving. In fact, there’s a brand new CD, released July 31, on Amazon and iTunes, Made in the USA, by the multi-talented, bubbly performer/entertainer Alitza, aka “Twinkle” (Creator/Songwriter). Her original music, charisma, talent, and effervescence light up all who have the privilege of hearing her songs.
Twinkle explains her “back- story”: “We debuted our first webisode on You Tube — now Twinkle is larger than life, a magical gift to kids nationwide.” A former lead singer of Hollywood Records’ all girl band “Nobody’s Angel,” who opened up for Britney Spears and The Backstreet Boys, and who earned a gold record for two songs on the soundtrack of The Princess Diaries, Twinkle’s passion is to sing popular music, teaching lessons with values, that win the hearts of kids, parents, and teachers alike. One example is “Cleanin’ Machine.” Twinkle says, “Parents will love it … a song about how fun cleaning is!” Of Peruvian descent, Twinkle speaks fluent Spanish, and compares her show to the hugely popular Dora the Explorer, “but in live action rather than cartoon form!”
Her CD is a “must have” for every boy and girl, where little girls can emulate Twinkle and Friends, all the cheerful characters, by singing catchy tunes, dressing in tutus, and wearing hearts on their cheeks, all the while taking away a message of doing good and having confidence…. While it primarily is a girl driven show, the boy characters/role models are also fantastic and super funny, like Zeke Zebra and Lil Hoops. Twinkle looks toward the future, with high hopes: “My goal is to have a TV show — a platform to reach the masses…. For now, in this ‘do it yourself’ day and age, I’m self-producing.” Termed affectionately “the Lady Gaga for kids,” Twinkle is well on her way to living her dream … “I always give 110% when I’m performing.”
