New Song Debut!

“It’s Raining Cats and Dogs” is a perfect song to brighten up the prospect of soggy spring weather. It very much suits the young solos singer of a junior elementary school choir.


A special thank you to Jordan, Olive and Kennedy for recording “It’s Raining Cats and Dogs” .

(Be sure to listen to the outtake at the very end of the podcast. The girls were quick to give Donna a new assignment! )
