Traditional lullabies to help parents and the Appeal
Hello, I’m The Lullaby Queen® a little cartoon with a lot of music and love.
I have produced beautiful, soothing traditional lullaby music for parents and their babies. Well-known tunes such as Rockabye Baby, Brahms’ Lullaby, All Through the Night, sung by me in the genuine style they were originally written and meant to be performed – through simple voice and piano accompaniment, which seems to have been lost. My wish is for parents to rediscover these lovely traditional lullabies and to sing them to their child, as a magical bonding family experience.
To celebrate my recent birth and album launch, I’m supporting the BBC Children In Need Appeal, donating £1 from the sale of my just released 14 song MP3 album The Lullaby Queen® Vol.1 – Dreamland. I am doing a Networkingmummies Members Special Offer of £4.99 (click here for details), normally priced at £7.99. I hope you enjoy them!
Dream songs for sleepy children
With this music I wish to soothe, calm and lull babies and toddlers to sleep and teach parents these beautiful songs, so they may sing along. Similar to how they were hopefully sung to as children. It will help the millions of stressed out, sleep-deprived parents wanting effective lullaby music for their babies and children.
The Lullaby Queen® is committed to fundraising for BBC Children In Need, the BBC's UK corporate charity making a real difference to the lives of children and young people who are disadvantaged all across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is:
I am an independent artist and producer of children’s music. I am not signed to a record label, having funded the project and produced the music myself. Little cartoons just starting out like me have very limited resources to market their music! But my main aim is to promote the BBC Children In Need Appeal and raise as much money for them as possible this year.
Here you can all listen to the song samples and download the MP3 singles and album.

How I came into being......
Stephanie McNamara, my creator, has brothers, sisters and other family and friends with children. When one of her nephews was born, she tried to find lullabies sung in the traditional way to give as a gift. But what was out there to buy?
Well, it wasn’t the sort of music I would want parents, children and babies to listen to and send them peacefully to sleep. So Stephanie did a little recording of her favourite lullabies from around the world, and created a cute and fun animation of me, singing loving, soothing, beautiful music with my rich, lovely voice.
I, The Lullaby Queen® was conceived. With my classical voice and piano accompaniment I can soothe, calm and create a loving, stress-free environment. My well-known lullabies and songs sung in the traditional way will help parents rediscover these lovely tunes and give them confidence to sing lullabies to their child.

Lots of love,

Back in September we were told that we were finalists for a national award called Achievers Academy for Women ran by Jo Cameron. We were in the 'network of networks' category and were up against four other businesses. The others in our category were all brilliant and we knew we were up against some stiff competition and if we are honest we didn't think we had any chance of winning.
On Friday the 9th we were invited to the awards ceremony at Aston Villa Football Club to find out the winners of all the awards. So we dressed up in our cocktail dresses and arrived at the venue. The room was set out amazing and we each arrived to a glass of champagne and a goody bag full of goodies on our seat.
We sat down for Jo's opening speech and started off the lovely meal. We were told after the main course that our category was going to be announced straight after dessert so we had another wait. After the lovely pudding they started to announce the winner of our category and myself and stacey were to busy taking bets on who we thought was winners that we were absolutely shocked when we were announced as winners! We were over the moon and went onto stage in a daze to collect our trophy and have our picture taken. We got back to our seats still in total shock but just really really proud of what we have achieved this year.
Myself and Stacey both work extremely well together and that is why it works! We sat down in January this year and we wrote our goals down and by doing so we committed to them to make them work. It has been an amazing year and winning this award has topped it off for us. We now can't wait until 2013!
Thanks to everyone that has supported us along the way!
