Library brings Laurie Berkner to Grosse Pointe

Bestselling artist performing May 16

Bestselling children’s recording artist and preschool television favorite Laurie Berkner is bringing her Laurie Berkner, Live! The Greatest Hits Solo Show to Brownell Middle School on Saturday, May 16 from 11 a.m. to noon. The show, presented by the Grosse Pointe Public Library, is free. Registration begins April 1.

“A child’s language development is supported, in part, by singing, dancing and having rich experiences with caregivers,” said Jessica Keyser, Library Director. “Library programs are a wonderful opportunity to foster that growth in a fun setting.”

During her show Laurie will bring such well-loved hits as Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz), Victor Vito, We Are The Dinosaurs and Pig on Her Head to this performance. She also will perform songs from her new album, Waiting for the Elevator. Many fan favorites, including an array of tunes that encourage kids and grownups to get up and dance, will be performed.

“I am so excited to be coming back to play in Michigan,” said Berkner. “I feel particularly honored to be hosted by the Grosse Pointe Library as I am a huge fan of libraries, and I love being a part of anything that encourages reading and literacy in kids. I can't wait to come and sing with families in the area!”

Berkner is one of most popular children’s entertainers in the U.S. She has filled countless venues nationwide with adoring fans and sold millions of albums, songs and videos. Her secret? Laurie’s shows are interactive throughout; her songs get the kids (and adults) on their feet to sing, clap and dance along. She keeps even the youngest audience members fully engaged with dynamic expressions of musical joy in active songs like I'm Gonna Catch You and Rocketship Run, and gives everyone a chance to catch their breath between high-energy moments by including quieter interludes featuring songs such as her classic Moon Moon Moon.
